Mumbai Driving Information

Driving is on the left side of the road.

Mumbai 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).

Mumbai Driving Stress Level: 9/10

With poor signposts and a steady flow of traffic, driving in the heart of Mumbai is only suitable for the most experienced of drivers. Local Indian drivers in the city of Mumbai seem to enjoy using their horns and be warned at night time, as some choose not to use their lights.

Many of the roads outside of the city are in need of repair and potholes are by no means uncommon. However, routes to surrounding cities and towns can be extremely scenic and the nearby coastline is full of popular attractions. Those intending to park their hire cars in central Mumbai will find that spaces can be somewhat illusive. Most car parks are located underground and close to shopping centres, with popular garages including those situated on the Oval Maidan and also at the Shivaji Park.
