What are the requirements to hire a car in Basrah?

Although the driving age in Iraq is 18 years old, some Basrah car hires require drivers to be at least 23 or 25 years old to hire a car. You also require a valid driver's licence from your home country, and an International Driving Permit (IDP) are two requirements for hiring a car in Basrah. A translation of your national driving licence is an IDP, which allows you to drive in foreign countries and verifies that you have a valid driver's licence in your home country. Before travelling to Iraq, all visitors who wish to drive must obtain an IDP in their native country or place of residency. Along with an IDP, you’ll need to bring your passport or a valid national identity card to collect your car hire in Basrah.

Basrah, like the rest of Iraq, drives on the right side of the road. Basrah's speed limits are 60 km/h (37 mph) on city roads and up to 120 km/h (75 mph) on highways. All passengers must wear a seat belt, and it's suggested that you always have your documents. Driving through a police roadblock without stopping is against the law, and you must always provide your driver's licence with your insurance papers.
