List of left- & right-driving countries

Last update: 20 February 2016

Click here if you want to find out the history behind driving on the left or right.

This world map shows which side of the road traffic drives on. Green coloured countries drive on the right, orange countries drive on the left. As you can see, most former British colonies, with some exceptions, drive on the left side of the road, whereas the United States of America, Latin American countries and European countries drive on the right. Almost always, in countries where one drives on the right-hand side of the road, the cars are built so that the driver sits on the left-hand side of the car. Conversely, driving on the left-hand side of the road usually implies that the driver’s seat is on the right-hand side of the car. Below the world map you can also find a complete list of all countries of the world and the side of the road the inhabitants drive on.
