Bangalore Driving Information

Driving is on the left side of the road.

Bangalore Airport rental cars may be either automatic OR manual transmission. Make sure to verify when booking if you are not comfortable with a manual 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).

Bangalore Driving Stress Level: 8/10

Whether you are able to hire a self-drive car or rent a vehicle complete with local driver, you will find driving around Bangalore an extremely memorable experience. Road markings are often ignored and at times, treated as if they don't exist, with cars and motorbikes unexpectedly changing lanes without warning. The horn is a vital feature of the car in Bangalore and frequently used, and many motorcyclists still choose not to wear a helmet.

However, drivers are fully aware of the hazards around the city and many are also happy to double up as a guide, pointing out prominent landmarks along the way. Car parks around the city are few and far between, although several multi-level garages and covered parking areas do exist, close to shopping centres, business parks and top attractions.
