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

In Slovakia you drive on the right hand side of the road and overtake on the left. Vehicles and Trams from the right in general have priority. Car horns should only be used to signify your attention to overtake or to warn of danger. A warning triangle is compulsory to carry in vehicles in case of a breakdown.

Parking Enforcement
If you park your car illegally then you will most likely find wheel blockers on your return which will result in a fine of approx €65. If your vehicle has been towed away, the fine will be a lot bigger approximately €225.

Disabled Parking
Parking which is reserved for disabled parking only will be marked with a wheelchair symbol. Do not park if there is a space marked with someone’s name, licence plate number or marked with a cross.
Some car parks will allow a vehicle displaying the disabled parking card to park free of charge or at a discounted rate – It is best to check the parking notices or ask an attendant.
