Are there any special requirements for driving or hiring a car in Cambodia?

More travelers are choosing to visit Cambodia to discover beautiful landscapes, white sandy beaches, rice field and green hills. In Cambodia you drive on the right and road conditions are good although some roads not on the highways can be bumpy and not in great condition. Driving during the rainy season should be done with caution and be mindful of the speed limits, hazards and traffic. The driver and front seat passenger must wear a seatbelt by law and children under the age of 10 cannot sit in the front seat.
