Driving in Andorra

Andorra
Population: 85,470
Area: 467.63 sq. Km
Currency: Euro

If you're driving in Andorra your checklist requirements are:

  • A valid UK driving licence - if you don't have a photo card licence, you'll need an International Driving Permit - find out more here
  • A GB sticker on the back of your car - even if your car has 'Euro-plates' (number-plates that show a circle of 12 stars on a blue background)
  • Your motor insurance certificate
  • A warning triangle inside the car in case you break down
  • Headlamp converters (stickers you put on your headlights when you're driving on the right, so your lights don't dazzle motorists coming the other way)
  • Spare bulbs for your car's external lights
  • Spiked tyres and snow chains during winter

You must also:

  • Be 18 or over
  • Make sure everyone in the car wears a seatbelt at all times
  • Wear a crash helmet if you're riding a motorcycle

It's a good idea to have:

  • A fire extinguisher
  • A first aid kit
  • A Green Card - it's a useful back-up to your motor insurance documents and shows you've got the minimum legal level of cover. If you'd like to find out more, contact your insurance company
  • A Camping Card International to give you additional proof of identity, third party liability insurance, plus discounts at a wide range of campsites and tourist attractions. Find out more here

Other things you should know:

  • You won't have to pay any motorway tolls when driving through Andorra
  • Petrol (leaded and unleaded) and diesel are readily available. You can't get LPG
  • Speed limits vary across Andorra, so check the signposts for maximum speeds
  • If you're caught committing a driving offence, you'll be given an on-the-spot fine
  • The drink driving limit is 50mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood - less than the UK limit of 80mg per 100ml
  • Children under age 10 can't sit in the front
