Driving in St Kitts & Nevis

Driving on the formerly British owned St Kitts and Nevis is on the left. Major roads on the islands are
actually in fairly good condition and reasonably maintained. As with many of the Caribbean islands,
roads can be dark during the night and often lack guide and marking signs. Beware of speed bumps,
potholes, and animals while driving, as well as cars that have stopped in the middle or on the side of
the road. Also be careful of venturing off of main roads in the cities to avoid getting lost. Drivers
should also note that car horns are used as a form of greeting rather than a voice of displeasure in
much of the Caribbean.

The speed limit is 40 mph in non-built up areas, 30 mph in town perimeters/where marked and 20
mph in residential areas, school zones and business districts.

Once arriving, drivers will need to secure a temporary driver's licence from the island on which they
will be driving. This is readily issued on presentation of an International Driving Permit or national
driving licence and a fee. Drivers on St Kitts can purchase a one year licence for $25 from the Traffic
Department on Cayon Street in Basseterre. Drivers in Nevis can go to the police departments at
Charlestown, Newcastle, Cotton Ground, or Gingerland to purchase a three-month licence for $24.
