Driving Laws

In Portugal, driving is on the right with overtaking on the left and you can be fined more than 1,000 Euros if you pass a driver on the right.

Most of the motorways in Portugal have tolls. You'll also find tolls on some bridges. Tolls can be paid in cash at the toll booths or, if in Portugal for some time, you can buy an automatic toll kit read by sensors on the toll roads (Via Verde).


Driver's Licence and Car Registration


The IMT - Institute of Mobility and Transport is the portuguese organisation dealing with the aspects of foreign Driver's Licence and Car Registrations.
