Driving in Lithuania (Domestic Help)

In Lithuania, traffic drives on the right. There is a good network of roads within the country. Modern four-lane motorways connect Vilnius with Klaipeda, Kaunas and Panevezys.

Seat belts must be worn. Children under 12 are not allowed to sit in the front seat. Alcohol up to 0.4 promiles allowed in drivers' blood. Drink-driving fines are severe; LTL 1,000-3,000 and/or withdrawal of driver's licence. The speed limit is 110 kph (68 mph) on motorways, 90 kph (56 mph) on country roads and 60 kph (44 mph) inside towns. The Vilnius-Kaunas highway has a speed limit of 100 kph (60 mph). Cars must keep headlights lit throughout the day from 1 November to 1 March and the first week of September.

Drivers should present documents to police when told to stopped. Documents required are driver’s licence and car registration certificate.

You will find petrol stations in Lithuania all offering unleaded petrol as well as diesel and gas fuel-filing stations. Some of them provide necessary repair services.

If you have a driver's licence issued abroad, you just need to go to the "Regitra" and exchange it for a Lithuanian driver's licence if your country has signed a convention with Lithuania on driver's licence exchange. Check your eligibility with the Lithuanian Embassy in your home country. Exchange is possible provided that you are staying in Lithuania for more than 6 months.

On the other hand, if you travel to Lithuania for a short period of time, you don't need to do anything. Driver's licence from other countries are valid and accepted in the country.
