Driving in Burkina Faso

In Burkina Faso, traffic drives on the right. Driving in Burkina Faso can be hazardous. Roads are usually unpaved and generally in bad condition. There are few street lights. Pedestrians, bicycles, carts, and vehicles without headlights pose serious hazards. Many trucks transit the country at night. Travel after dark is not recommended. In general, roads are impassable during the rainy season (July to October).

All driving licences are legally valid, but International Driving Permits are preferred and should be renewed every year or converted into a local licence after one year. After conversion into a local licence no renewal will be required.
