Driving in Algeria

Traffic drives on the right. Road surfaces are reasonably good. All vehicles travelling in the desert should be in good mechanical condition, as breakdown facilities are virtually non-existent. Travellers must carry full supplies of water and petrol. Travel by road (outside Algiers) in northern Algeria should be avoided, especially after dark.

An International Driving Permit is required and a carnet de passage may be required. Cars are allowed entry for three months without duty.

Driving in Algeria is risky, since motorists often do not observe traffic laws and street names are not always indicated. Most drivers exceed their capabilities by driving at high rates of speed. Minor and major traffic accidents are common, resulting in vehicle damage and in some instances, loss of life.
