Uganda Driving and car hire Information, advice & tips
Driving in Uganda is on the left hand side. Visitors need to possess a valid international driving license to drive. Uganda has good passable roads, with road-signs (but not to all of them). There are several car hiring services in Uganda, however, it is convenient for visitors to have an International Driving License. Valid road licenses are endorsed at the Road Transport Office/revenue Authority offices in Kampala before hiring a car for self-drive.
Most car hiring companies recommend that the client take Personal Accident Insurance inclusive of Medical Repatriation, from the point of departure. This is because this is not covered under the vehicle Insurance. Car hire services are also available with several companies providing car rental services. Due to robbery and car, hiring companies prefer renting them with drivers, but self-drive services are also available though still very limited.
