Driving on Scotland's roads**

Scotland adheres to the same driving laws as England. Road signs are in English and in miles per hour.

General information:

  • Right hand drive - Drive on the left, overtake on the right.
  • Minimum car hire age - 21 years old. Under 25's may have to pay a young driver surcharge.
  • Seatbelt - Compulsory for all occupants to wear a seatbelt. The driver is responsible for ensuring all passengers are wearing a seatbelt.
  • Travelling with children - Children under three and those less than 135cm must use the correct child seat.
  • Petrol stations - As in England, most petrol stations operate an 'early until late' policy, with many open 24 hours.

Road safety laws

Speed limits

  • Motorway - 70mph/112kph
  • Dual carriageways - 70mph/112kph
  • Single carriageways - 60mph/96kph
  • Built up/urban areas - 30mph/48kph

Although these are the standardised speed limits, there may be local variations so please be careful to check the road signs.

Driving licence

Important Information - Changes to the UK Driving Licence

You are permitted to drive in Scotland if you have a full UK driving licence. You will not need an International Driving Permit (IDP)

Mobile phone use

You can receive a fixed penalty notice if you are caught using a hand-held phone while driving. You could also receive a substantial fine and 3 points on your licence. Use of a completely hands-free kit is permitted.

Drinking and driving

If you are stopped by the Police, they may ask you to use a breathalyser if they believe you to have been drinking. The limit for all motorists is 50mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood.

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

**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.
