Driving in Macau

Traffic in Macau drives on the left and roads are narrow and winding. There are two bridges: one to Taipa Island, and a bridge carrying a four-lane highway from the international airport to the Macau-China border at Zhuhai. The speed limit is 60 kph (37 mph) for cars and 40 kph (25 mph) for 50 cc motorbikes.

Driving in Macau is not really recommended due to the massive gridlock at all times of day and night. Taxis are inexpensive and plentiful at the airport, ferry terminal, and gaming venues. Public buses are also inexpensive and frequent, but you may have difficulty finding them outside major tourist areas.

National driving licences issued from the following countries are valid for driving in Macau and need not be accompanied with an International Driving Permit:

Australia, Belgium, Brazil, France, Greece, Guinea-Bassau, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Mozambique, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Portugal, Sao Tome & Principe, UK, USA.

All you need to do is to register at the Police Traffic Department of Macau SAR.

If your driving licence was not issued from the above listed countries, you must secure an International Driving Permit and register at the Macau Traffic Department.
