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

Road conditions are quite poor in Yemen with many roads in a state of disrepair, mountain roads are particularly hazardous so motorists need to take extra car when driving. In Yemen you drive on the right and the maximum speed limit is 100kph although this is usually ignored by locals and rarely enforced. Seatbelts and child restraint systems are not required by law although if visiting Yemen we recommend wearing a seatbelt and having a suitable child restraint system for children under the age of 12.
