Country Driving Guides

TISPOL's Country Driving Guides provide clear and easy to follow information to answer the most frequently asked questions by visiting motorists.  Recent changes in legislation are highlighted, with tips on what to do in the event of a breakdown or accident.

Important note: It is ultimately the responsibility of the individual to ensure he/she complies with driving laws in specific countries.  TISPOL's guides are for general information only.  Whilst we make every effort to ensure the guides are current and updated, we cannot be held responsible in the event of any inaccuracies or errors.
