Driving in Australia|

In order to rent a car in Australia, it’s essential to have a valid driver’s licence issued in the country you live in and be over 21 years old.

Factor in long distances when you travel, especially in rural or remote areas. There are rest areas every 80-100 kilometres on motorways and roads. Extreme weather conditions often affect driving: be aware of bushfire, heatwaves warnings when you travel. In some areas, a four-wheeled drive is advised.

The national speed limit is 110 km/h on motorways. There are some variations, including the Northern Territory which is 130 km/h. On single-carriageway roads the limit is 100 km/h, in built-up areas it lowers to 50 km/h and to 40 km/h in school zones.

There are payable tolls on motorways around major cities in Australia. Some use a fully electronic system so you’ll need to buy an e-tag pass to pay. These can be bought in advance or paid online up to 3 days after you’ve passed through the toll.
