    Driving in Morocco**

    Don't be put off driving in Morocco with tales that Moroccan roads are a nightmare. In reality, roads are not too different from driving in France and have greatly improved in recent years. We've put together the following information on what you need to know before you take to the road.

    • Left hand drive vehicles - Drive on the right, overtake on the left.
    • Minimum car hire age - 18 years old. Under 25's may have to pay a young driver surcharge. Carry your driving licence with you.
    • Seatbelt - It is compulsory for all front occupants to wear a seatbelt, but not in the rear.
    • Travelling with children - Child safety laws are rather lax and the onus is on the parents, rather than the law to keep children safe in cars. When booking your hire car, make the provider aware of what child seats you need or consider taking your own.
    • Mobile phones - Only the use of hands free phones is permitted.
    • Toll roads - There are toll roads between the major cities of Casablanca, Rabat and Tangiers. Tolls are paid at the barriers and can be paid by cash or card.

    Road safety laws

    Speed limits

    • Motorways - 90kph/100kph
    • Rural Speed limit - 100kph
    • Urban areas - 60kph

    Road Etiquette

    Drivers tend to honk their horns an awful lot more than in the UK - in fact it becomes a normal driving activity, particularly in built up areas! Locals also don't tend to give way to pedestrians and will even park on crossings. You should also take care at roundabouts, as they are often navigated on a first come, first served basis.

    Drinking and driving

    It is against the law to drink and drive in Morocco. Driving under the influence of any alcohol is illegal and you could risk a fine if you are caught. Random breath tests are commonplace, therefore the best advice is to avoid alcohol completely.

    It is important to note that drinking alcohol and then driving may invalidate your car rental insurance, irrespective of local drink driving laws. Check your policy for full details.

    Radar detectors/SatNavs

    SatNavs aren't illegal in Morocco. However, given that some roads outside of urban areas are as good as those you would find in the UK, it is recommended to stick to the speed limits at all times. Anyone caught speeding will be subject to an on the spot fine.

    On-the-spot fines

    If you are stopped by the police for a minor motoring offence, you will be liable for an on the spot fine. You will be given a ticket indicating the amount to be paid and how to pay it.

    Driving licence

    Important Information - Changes to the UK Driving Licence

    Fuel advice

    Petrol is widely available and the variant that most cars use is known as super. Unleaded fuel - sans plomb is also widely available.

    tends to be cheaper. Most service stations provide full service and will fill your car for you. However, most do not take credit cards, so it is best to pay in cash.

    **This information should be considered as a broad overview of things to remember when hiring a car. It is therefore very important that you read the rental terms and conditions and associated policies for your own specific policy as well as doing your own research into the motoring laws of the country in which you will be driving.
