Driving in the US Virgin Islands is a comfortable experience even for the less experienced driver. Roads are usually well maintained and distances manageable. The only real difficulties are the hilly terrain and switchback roads. One very important thing to note is that driving is on the left side of the road, unlike in the continental United States.

A valid domestic driving license can be used for up to 90 days, while international visitors will need to obtain a temporary island license.
