Our travel guide gives you useful advice on getting about using public transport, driving by car as well as explaining how to buy, sell, rent or import a car.
Who needs a Mexican driving licence?
It is possible for foreigners to drive in Mexico provided they have a valid driving licence from their home country. Alternatively, you can also acquire a Mexican drivers license.
Car insurance, petrol stations and safety tips
Unfortunately the Mexican authorities do not recognise overseas insurance policies as valid when driving in Mexico, so you will need to take out a Mexican car insurance policy.
Importing or buying a car in Mexico
Renting a car is not a very economical long-term option for driving in Mexico. If you stay for a while you will probably either want to import a car to Mexico from abroad or buy a car in Mexico. Consider the pros and cons of these options before making a decision.
