Getting around Dominica

Side of road
Road quality

Roads are well maintained in and around Roseau, but total just 700km (450 miles). Traffic is scarce outside Roseau.

Car hire

Available, but rural roads can be tricky to navigate.


These are efficient, and rates are set by law, so taxi drivers don't expect tips.


There is a 32kph (20mph) speed limit in towns and villages. Visiting drivers must be between 25 and 65 years old and have had at least two years' driving experience in order to apply for a local driver's permit.


International Driving Permit recommended. A valid foreign licence can be used to get a Temporary Visitor's Permit.

Visa and passport information is updated regularly and is correct at the time of publishing. You should verify critical travel information independently with the relevant embassy before you travel.
