Canberra Driving Information

Driving is on the left side of the road.

All Canberra 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).

Canberra Driving Stress Level: 5/10

Central Canberra boasts plenty of parking spaces and it is usually easy to find somewhere to park. However, small and centrally located car parks often fill up quickly. Many hotels contain their own car parks, together with shopping centres, where the first few hours of parking tend to be free of charge.


When hiring cars at Canberra Airport, be sure to check what is covered by the insurance policy before driving away. Cars are always fitted with air conditioning, are right-hand drive, and driving is on the left-hand side of the road throughout Australia.


Canberra is a thriving tourist destination in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and it is sensible to reserve cars in advance. Most rental firms at the airport are grouped as economy, compact, intermediate, luxury and 4WD.
