Driving and traffic

New expats are often eager to hop onto their own moto and hit Cambodia’s highways and byways. We can help you get a Cambodian driving license and get onto the road.

But be sure to be very careful–the roads in Cambodia are an adventure! There are the freewheeling (dare we say reckless?) drivers, of course, but also the police, who can seem to be waiting on every corner to exact a bribe. For those situations, we’ve got some tips for dealing with the police while you’re on the road. And of course you’ll want to read up about Cambodian road safety.

If you plan to own a car but don’t want to drive yourself, you can learn more about hiring a driver in our Hiring household staff section.

This is an excerpt from Move to Cambodia: A guide to living and working in the Kingdom of Wonder. To learn more about 100+ topics that pertain to Cambodia expats, please consider buying the book.
