    Driving information Ukraine

    General Information

    Ukraine lies between Romania and Russia. Ukraine has a coast-line along the Black Sea that offers beautiful scenery. With car in Kiev you can easily discover the attractions of this capital. If you are visiting the Island of Crimea in the Black Sea a rental car is really advisable

    Requirements
    To rent a car, you must be at least 20 years old (age can vary by car category) and have held your driver's license for at least 1 year. There are extra fees for young drivers under age 22. An international driver's license is mandatory.

    Speed Limits
    Speed limits in Ukraine are:

    • Town and city: 60 km/h
    • Open Roads: 90 km/h
    • Motorways: 130 km/h

    Traffic restrictions
    In Ukraine, like in its neighbouring country Romania, you drive on the right side of the road. It is illegal to use a hand held mobile phone while driving in Ukraine. Dipped headlights should be used all the time. 

    Petrol
    Most petrol stations are open between 08:00 - 22:00, even in cities such as Kiev. Some stations along the motorway are open 24 h.

    Tolls

    Parking
    The locals tend to park everywhere. To avoid getting blocked by a doubled parked car we recommend you to use public car parsk instead. It might be a little bit more expensive but it's sure safer. Never leave any valuable items in your parked car.
