A Guide to Driving In Kyrgyzstan
If you want to visit beautiful lakes, mountain ranges, and even the ruins of the Silk Road, renting a car is a terrific option. Renting a car is a great method to see parts of the country that aren’t accessible by public transportation or that are only available through group trips. Buses, taxis, and a few intercity trains are the only modes of public transportation available in the country. To rent a car in Kyrgyzstan, simply bring your valid local driver’s license as well as your International Driving License.
Some Points to remember:
- You have to drive on the right side of the road.
- The minimum age limit for driving is 18 years. You can rent a car if you are 21 years or more.
- Keep your documents with you all times like passport, driving license, IDP and car rental documents.
- If you get pulled over by the police for a traffic violation, you will be given a penalty notice and given 21 days to submit the fine at the nearby police station.
- The maximum speed limits in cities is 50km/h and 80 km/h in rural areas and 100 km/h on highways..
- You can overtake a vehicle from the right side.
- In Kyrgyzstan, it is illegal to drink and drive. However, Kyrgyzstan’s most distinctive driving rule, which also applies to many other Islamic countries, is that they have zero tolerance for drunk driving. You may be used to being permitted to drink and drive as long as you keep your blood alcohol level to a safe level (one for the road) in order to pass a breathalyzer test. You will not be allowed to drive in Kyrgyzstan if you have even a smell of alcohol in your system. Drunk driving does not necessarily imply that you are inebriated or tipsy; it simply means that you have taken any amount of alcohol.
- In Kyrgyzstan, you must not use your telephone while driving.
Kyrgyzstan has a mostly sunny climate with only approximately 70 days of rain each year. Because Kyrgyzstan is so far from any ocean, the climate is continental. Even though summers in cities can be quite hot, the highlands stay cooler even during the hottest months.
Have fun on your journey and stay safe!
