You will drive on the left side of the road in this country, as opposed to the right, as in the U.S. The roads are winding and narrow, often with steep drop-offs, so it’s very important to take care when hiring a vehicle in this country. There aren’t many stoplights or road signs in Dominica, so you will need to use your experience on the road and remain vigilant throughout the time you are driving. Most roads are only a single lane, which can make passing other vehicles difficult. You will also notice a lot of honking horns in Dominica, with it being a customary act of announcing your presence to other vehicles and pedestrians.
Most rental car companies require you to be at least 25 years old and have held your driving license for at least two years in order to rent. Drivers that are under 30 years of age will often face young driver surcharges and be restricted on the types and models of the cars they can rent.
