Victoria Driving Information

Driving is on the right side of the road.

All Butchart Gardens 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).

Victoria Driving Stress Level: 2/10

Victoria has non-aggressive and slow drivers.


If you decide to explore Vancouver Island, drive with care. While the Malahat Drive (a section of the highway between Victoria and Duncan) is scenic, it is also dangerous, with more than its fair share of fatalities. Reduce the risk by driving in daylight, using designated pull-outs for gawking (otherwise, keep your eyes on the road!), avoid driving in poor weather, and adhere to posted signs and speed limits.
