Federated States of Micronesia Driving Advice and Car Hire Info

Driving in Micronesia –
Driving abroad in Micronesia is on the right-hand side of the road but a lot of the cars are right hand drive, which makes overtaking difficult. You should take great care when overtaking and be aware of other vehicles overtaking when it may not be safe.Traffic is increasing and there can be congestion in the Island’s capitals at peak times. Many roads are in poor condition with potholes, and will worsen after heavy rains. Some roads are surfaced in crushed coral and are very slippery when wet. There is no formal driver training so skills vary and driving style can be unpredictable. Roads outside the towns are often unpaved and unlit and are used by pedestrians, children playing, animals, and potentially drunk drivers, especially on weekends and holidays. You should always exercise extra caution if driving at night.
