Faroe Islands Driving Advice and Car Hire Info

Driving in Faroe Islands –
Driving abroad in the Faroes is on the right and you should be able to rent a car using the licence from your own country. Roads are generally in good condition and are well signposted. The speed limit is 50 mph away from towns and 30 mph in built up areas. Parking in the towns of Klaksvík, Tórshavn, Runavík and the Airport is via parking discs which you can get from banks and some shops. Dipped headlights must be on at all time. Sheep roam freely on some roads and don’t have great road sense, so drive cautiously in case one runs into the road unexpectedly.Strong winds and heavy rain are likely all year so adjust your driving to any adverse weather conditions you encounter.
