British Virgin Islands Driving Advice and Car Hire Info
Driving in British Virgin Islands
British Virgin Islands drive on the left and you can rent a car using the photo ID licence from most countries.Tortola’s main roads are usually paved, and are in reasonable condition, but expect the odd pot hole. There are also some very steep hills and hair-pin bends so driving on these roads at night isn’t recommended. A single primary road circles the island and several roads criss-cross it. These cross roads are almost always through hilly/mountainous terrain. Virgin Gorda has a smaller road system and a single, steep road links the north and south ends of Virgin Gorda. Anegada’s roads are little more than sandy lanes and dirt roads. Speed limits, which seem to be rarely enforced, are 20 mph in town and 35 mph outside town. Driving styles are usually fairly laid back but drive cautiously as some local drivers may overtake when it isn’t safe to do so and exceed the speed limit.
