Driving in Turks & Caicos Islands

Driving in the Turks & Caicos Islands is on the left and traffic tends to be light. Seat belts must be worn at all times. Speed limits are 32 kph (20 mph) in town and 64 kph (40 mph) elsewhere.

The terrain is flat and subject to flooding during or after storms. Primary roads are generally good in both urban and rural areas. Secondary roads are often unpaved and contain ruts and potholes. Road signs are not prevalent, but navigating with a tourist map is possible as there are few roads on the island. Hazards such as blind intersections, road work, or changes in road conditions are frequently unmarked. Roundabouts and other intersections often have no signs or traffic signals; drivers are required to give way to those on their immediate right. Wild donkeys are a common sight on Grand Turk Island and occasionally walk on the roads, presenting a hazard to drivers, especially at night.

Temporary visitors wishing to drive in the Turks & Caicos require a valid driver's licence from their country of residence. Driving under the influence of alcohol is illegal, and drivers convicted of the offence may face fines, detention, or both. Roadside assistance in the event of a breakdown is generally not available.
