Chicago Driving Information


 
Driving is on the right side of the road.


 
All Chicago O`Hare 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).


 
Chicago Driving Stress Level: 7/10

Driving in Chicago can be competitive, so be prepared to get cut off on highways and major streets by aggressive drivers in a hurry (taxis can be especially unpredictable). Local drivers tend to speed up to get through yellow lights, so make sure you are not being followed too closely as you slow down at intersections.

 

Making a right turn on a red light is legal in this city, unless otherwise posted. Drivers in left turn lanes tend to take liberties even after the light has turned red, so beware of impatient drivers who do not like to wait for the next chance to turn.
