Driving regulations in Montenegro
Most roads in Montenegro are curvy and mountainous, so speeds over 70 km/h are rarely legal, and rarely safe.
SPEED LIMIT - Speed limit is 80km/h on the open road, unless signs specify otherwise. Speed limit inside the cities is 50km/h.
SAFETY BELTS - The use of safety belts is compulsory
MOBILE PHONES - Use of cell phones while driving is prohibited. Hands Free systems are an exception.
HEADLIGHTS - It is necessary to use headlights 24 hours a day in Montenegro.
The best way to travel in Montenegro by hired vehicle is to rent a car from a registered car rental agency. The prices are affordable and the car hiring services have international standards including the reliable insurances.
Useful driving tips
When driving from Podgorica to Budva, one can choose between the two ways, either via Historical Capital of Cetinje where The King Nikola’s Castle and Cetinje Monastery can be visited or the road via tunnel Sozina can be taken which shortens the journey significantly; it’s advisable to travel via Sozina tunnel if you are heading towards cities of Bar , Ulcinj, Sutomore, Petrovac , Budva, Kotor, Herceg Novi. When driving from Budva to Kotor, there are also two ways – one is via tunnel Vrmac, that’s the shorter and safer road, but for the taste of adventure we suggest taking the old road through Trojica hill above the city of Kotor, that’s steep and tortuous mountain road but from there you can enjoy the picturesque panoramic view on Kotor bay, surrounding countryside landscape and remote villages.
