When driving your hire car, all passengers need to wear seatbelts while on the road and there may only be as many passengers in the car as there are seat belts. Brazil has a zero tolerance policy on drinking and driving so if you are planning on going out to party, it is advisable to take a taxi there and back. If you are driving a motorbike in the country, you will need to wear a helmet at all times and so do any passengers that are accompanying you on the motorcycle.
