Driving in Slovenia (Domestic Help)

Slovenia's roads are for the most part well maintained and well signposted, and you won't have a problem if you drive or hire a car. In Slovenia, traffic drives on the right. Speed limits are 130kph (80mph) on motorways, 100kph (62mph) on roads reserved to motor traffic and 90kph (56mph) on roads outside residential areas. In cities it is 50kph (31mph). School buses cannot be overtaken. The alcohol limit is 0.05%. Safety belts are compulsory (even in the back, if provided). Dimmed headlights must be turned on at all times while driving, even during the day.

As for driver's licence, if you are from an EU/ EEA country (EEA: Norway, Lichtenstein and Iceland), you can switch your driver’s licence for a Slovene one at anytime. If you are non EU/ EEA national, you will need to take a short driving test with an instructor and you will also be required to obtain a medical certificate from your doctor before you are allowed to switch your driving licence with a Slovene one. You will also need proof from the authorities of your home country that you passed your exam and the date completed. Do not worry about your old licence as the Slovene authorities do not throw it away but they send it to your nearest embassy or consulate. If you ever need it back, go your nearest embassy or consulate and talk to them about switching again, usually they will do so without hassle.
