In Malta all traffic drives on the left hand side of the road as in the UK.
You must give priority on the road to any form of public transport including school buses. That includes stopping whilst they let passengers or schoolchildren on and off the vehicle.
Roundabouts- whoever is coming from the right has right of way.
Many of the roads in Malta are in poor condition so you should exercise caution when traversing them. Malta’s drivers are also known for driving fast and recklessly. They are particularly aggressive when it comes to overtaking. Renting a four by four vehicle is always a good investment. However since the standardization of driving tests quality of driving has really improved. You can always spot a rental car as they always have a Q in the number plate!
Try to avoid driving in the capital Valetta during the rush hour as the traffic can be really bad.
