Driving in Turkey can seem daunting at first, but is a breeze compared with other countries in the region. Roads are generally good and well maintained, and Turks are accomplished, if sometimes free-spirited drivers. More of a hurdle is getting through the paperwork.
Current regulations allow foreigners to drive a car with either Turkish or foreign number plates during their residency period. Motorists are required to carry their original foreign driving license and a notarized Turkish translation thereof. After six months, this needs to be converted into a Turkish driving license. Any vehicle being driven in Turkey must be insured. There are several ways of making your application, and notarised documents and proof of a clean driving license are often required.
