St Vincent and the Grenadines Driving Advice and Car Hire Info

Driving in St Vincent and Grenadines-
A local driver’s licence is required to drive on St Vincent and is obtainable at Police Headquarters in Kingstown on production of your own driving licence and two passport photos. Your rental company should be able to arrange it for you too. The cost appears to be $100EC though I have seen a figure quoted on a St Vincent government website which mentions $60EC.  St Vincent and the Grenadines drive on the left.

There are main roads running along the East and West Coasts of the island but no road encircling the entire island or across the centre. The road network ends in the North around Beleine Bay.  Most roads away from main settlements are narrow and many are in poor condition. In mountainous areas the roads can be extremely steep and have sharp hairpin bends, many of which are not clearly marked so driving at night should be avoided. Automatic four-wheel drive vehicles are popular and in some areas essential, particularly after rain. Traffic is generally light but driving standards can be poor compared to the USA or Europe so you should drive cautiously at all times.

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.
