All you need to know

Driving in Morocco

Driving around Morocco is the best way to travel.

It allows you to get the most out of your holiday, discover off-the-beaten-track destinations, and have experiences no organized tour can provide.

Here’s all you need to know about driving in Morocco, with some helpful advice about how to approach the few things you’re unfamiliar with.

The official rules of the road

The minimum age to drive is 18 and you should carry your driving licence with you.

Driving in Marrakech or any Moroccan city

Tangier, Rabat, Marrakech and Fes are all congested so in many respects, it’s not dissimilar to driving in any large city around the world.


There’s a lot of honking! When you drive off the ferry and onto the Moroccan roads for the first time, the noise of the car horns might terrify less than confident drivers.

Road conditions

The road conditions in the cities are good if a little dusty. Watch out for the occasional missing drain cover in the curbside gutter.
