Driving Around Isle Of Man

With 688 miles of roads, from winding country lanes to busy ‘A’ roads, there is a vast network of roads to explore by car on the Isle of Man. Driving is similar to driving in the UK, as cars drive on the left hand side of the road as well. Car enthusiasts will enjoy the de-restricted roads with no speed limits, although dangerous driving is not tolerated.

If you are bringing your own car, a parking disc is a useful purchase as many built up areas around the island have parking zones where you are required to indicate the time of your arrival using the disc. Parking discs are available at the Sea Terminal, the airport information desk and at tourist information points. If you are hiring a car, they normally come with a parking disc. Hire cars are an inexpensive way of exploring the island – see our Car Hire page for more details.
