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

From dramatic mountains and walking and horse riding opportunities, North Macedonia might just surprise you! In North Macedonia you drive on the right and overtake on the left. If you decide to travel near the border with Kosovo it is best to stick to primary roads and daylight hours only. If you are looking to take your vehicle outside of North Macedonia it is best to check with the local car rental agent that this is allowed. You must have a high visibility jacket and warning triangle in your vehicle at all times, it is also recommended to carry winter tyres or snow chains if you’re travelling between 15th November and 15th March.
