Here are some rules to remember if you want to get behind the wheel.
Driving in Bahrain is on the right.
Seatbelts are compulsory for the driver and the front seat passenger.
Small children must be seated in the back.
Mobiles (cellphones) are not allowed unless you have a hands-free attachment.
Road signs are in English and Arabic and easy to follow. The speed limit on inner city roads varies between 50 and 80 kph and the maximum on highways is 100 kph.
If you happen to meet with an accident while driving, do not move the vehicle until traffic police get to the scene and permit you to do so. This includes minor "fender-benders".
