Unless you’re bringing a car from outside the country, it’s not likely that you’ll be doing much driving in Myanmar, due to the special government permissions required to drive in the country. Instead, when you rent a car in Myanmar, you’ll also be required to hire a driver and cover his or her meals and accommodation if you plan to rent a car overnight.
The rules regarding age are more relaxed when it comes to renting a car, due to the fact that you probably won’t be the one behind the wheel. To rent a car in Myanmar, you must be over the age of 18.

The speed limits in Myanmar are strictly enforced within the cities, and violating them too many times can come with dire consequences, including imprisonment. The speed limit within cities in Myanmar is 48 km/h (30 mph), and expressway speed limits can range from 60 km/h (37 mph) to 80 km/h (50mph). When traveling between cities—for example, Mandalay and Yangon—speed limits are not as strictly enforced.
