Driving and Parking in Georgia

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 20 to rent a car in Georgia. If you are from outside the United States of America you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP).

As in the rest of the USA, you drive on the right in Georgia and there are many laws in place to ensure you drive safely. This includes strict drink-driving laws, rules around seatbelts, and a complete ban on texting while driving. Traffic laws are enforced and so to avoid being pulled over and issued with a fine, make sure you understand all of the rules before travelling.

When you rent a car in Georgia, you will find that parking very much depends on where you are in the state.

Key Routes

If you are looking for a road trip in Georgia, one of the key routes you can take is the Georgia Coastal Road Trip. You can do this in a couple of hours and just take in the views, or you can stop off at different places along the way and make the trip last a few days. Starting in Savannah, Georgia’s first city, the trip takes in Tybee Island, Riceboro, Darien, Brunswick, Jekyll Island, St Simon’s Island and St. Marys, with a variety of things to do and see in each place.

Major Highways

There are over 1,200 miles of interstate highway in Georgia, letting you easily drive across the state and into neighbouring South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, and Tennessee. In rural areas, the interstates carry speed limits of 70mph, but these can reduce to between 55 and 65mph where the road passes through an urban area. If you are caught travelling at 10mph or more above the speed limit you can be fined so it is worth making sure you make sure you know exactly what the speed limit is.

Other major routes through Georgia are the US highways, numbered main roads that provide links between smaller towns and neighbourhoods. Speed limits on these roads tend to vary depending on the locality, but usually will be around 65mph. Smaller state roads will have a limit if 55mph, but this will shrink to between 25 and 35mph inside municipalities.
