Grenada Driving Advice and Car Hire Info

Driving In Grenada
Driving Abroad in Grenada is on the left in right hand drive vehicles. You must obtain a local driving permit to drive here. These can be obtained at the police station in the Carenage in St. George’s or your car rental company will be able to arrange it for you if you provide a copy of your own country’s photo licence. The cost of the local permit is $24(USD)

Around half of Grenada’s 1120km of roads are paved. There are two main roads – a coastal route which follows the West coast then comes inland as it heads down the East coast, and the road from St George’s to Grenville which runs across the centre of the island. To drive around the whole island should take around 5 hours. Main roads are generally in good condition and can be surprisingly busy, but smaller roads can have a number of pot holes and be poorly lit, so should be avoided at night. Local drivers may overtake recklessly so you should drive defensively and expect the unexpected at all times. Take particular care in wet weather when conditions on the roads will deteriorate rapidly.

Although I try and keep the information in the site updated as much as possible, in a rapidly moving world, situations can change daily. Therefore please use the site as an approximate guide, and in conjunction with other resources in order to form your view on driving conditions, roads, safety etc.
