"Driving" Croatia Transportation Tip by smirnofforiginal

Croatia Transportation: 175 reviews and 166 photos

The roads in Croatia are not great although there are more motorways being built now, but driving is painfully slow (not in speed limits but due to the indirect road systems).

To drive in Croatia you must have your full UK drivers licence, passport, registration documents, adequate insurance (and this isn't cheap as it is considered a "high risk country" - I don't understand why!) and your green card.

You MUST have your headlights on at all times. It is the law.

It is illegal to overtake military convoys or long lines behind slow moving vehicles.
You should not pass a bus if passengers are getting on/off.
Public transport and school buses have right of way when leaving a stop.

You should not drive on tram lines

Children under 12 years of ages CANNOT sit in the front of a car.

Speed limits are : Built up areas 50kph Open roads 80/100kph Motorways 130kph
Caravans and cars towing a trailer are limited to 80kph.
