Driving can be a bit challenging during morning and afternoon rush hours. We recommend avoiding the Punte de las Americas bridge, Calle 50, and Vía España that are notorious hotspots. Also, some roads can transform into one-way roads to counter traffic during the start or end of holidays, so it's wise to get into the city early on before the holidays kick in. hired cars in Panama City come with the convenience of visiting top attractions, such as Playa Malibú and Cerro Chame, in nearby cities. The city can be fairly walkable but cheap hired cars in Panama City will be an ideal alternative if you want to get the most out of your trip.

Driving in a large unfamiliar city can be a daunting task, but having the territory's rules of the road in mind can make the process seamless. Traffic travels on the right-hand side, so you should always drive on the right of the road. Panama law requires that all drivers wear a shirt while behind the wheel. It's against the law to use a cellular phone to call or text while driving, and the driver and front-seat passengers must wear seat belts. You don't have to put on a seat belt if you sit in the back of the vehicle. If you're travelling with a child under five years of age, they must be in a special child seat in the back. You'll find yourself with a drunken driving violation if you drive hired cars in Panama City after consuming a small amount of alcohol, as Panama has a zero BAC driving limit. Check with Panama City's motor vehicle department for any recent law developments.

You should always carry with you your Panama driving license or your country's driving license if you're a visitor. International drivers will also have to showcase an international driver's permit along with foreign licenses. Panama law also stresses that you carry your identification when driving, whether Panama ID (Cedula) or passport for foreigners. It's worth noting that foreign driving licenses are only valid for three months after entry into Panama, after which you must obtain a Panama driving license. The minimum age to drive or rent a vehicle in Panama is 18 years, but suppliers for Panama City car rentals consider those under 25 as novice drivers. You may incur an extra charge for your economy car rental or people carrier rental if you're between 18-24 years old.
