Driving in Germany is very straightforward, although parking regulations can be rigidly enforced, so we’ve included a section below to help you understand them.
You should also be aware that, contrary to popular belief, speed limits do apply on many sections of the autobahn, but these are clearly signed.
It’s also worth learning about the overtaking rules, for example on some roads where there’s more than one lane and traffic is heavy it’s fine to overtake on the right – plus you must also always overtake trams on the right and only indicate when you’re leaving a roundabout.
There are plenty of road signs telling you what to do and after a little while you’ll be well-versed in German driving customs.
