Driving in Nepal
 
 
 

In Nepal, traffic drives on the left. The general standard of driving throughout the country is poor and badly regulated. Roads in Kathmandu are very congested. Many drivers are not properly licensed, trained or insured and vehicles are poorly maintained. There are few pavements outside central Kathmandu and motorists do not yield right of way to pedestrians.

Road conditions are generally poor and difficult even in the best of conditions. During the monsoon season (June to September) many roads outside the Kathmandu valley are prone to landslides and become impassable.

An International Driving Permit is valid in Nepal for 15 days, after which a local licence is required. A temporary licence is available from local authorities on presentation of a valid national driving licence. You are advised to carry your licence with you at all times when driving as well as any documents relating to the vehicle itself.
