Apia Driving Information


 
Driving is on the right side of the road.


 
All Apia Faleolo Airport rental cars are automatic transmission.


 
Your local drivers' licence is required.


An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).


 
Apia Driving Stress Level: 3/10

Samoa now drives on the left hand side of the road after changing from the right on September 7th 2009, but most of the cars are left hand drive, since they are from either American Samoa or America. Previously cars were imported from Australia and New Zealand but a change in legislation in the late '90s made it illegal for people to import right hand drive cars. It was to allow access to cheaper cars from Japan, New Zealand and Australia that the change was made.


The speed limit within the Apia area is 40kmph (25mph), and outside of Apia it is 56 km/hr (35mph).
