Sydney Driving Information


 
Driving is on the left side of the road.


 
Sydney 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).


 
Sydney Driving Stress Level: 6/10

All cars in Sydney and throughout Australia are right-hand drive and must be driven on the left-hand side of the road. Drivers are always expected to give way to the right. Roads are generally good and major routes well signposted but be prepared to sit in lengthy peak hour traffic jams and pay up to AUD 19 per hour to park your car.
