Driving Tips

Driving in Morocco is a great way to see the country but some care is required. Routes between major cities are generally in good condition but minor roads can be hazardous. Traffic in cities can be extremely congested. The major cities are connected by tolled expressways and you can find out beforehand how much your route will cost. Be aware most signs are posted in Arabic and French.

Here are some of the main roadways:

  • The A3 connects Casablanca and Rabat
  • The A1 extends from Rabat to Tangier
  • The A2 heads towards the east from Rabat to Fez, about a 200 km stretch.
  • The A7 runs south from Casablanca and for now only reaches Marrakech, although it is planned to extend all the way to Agadir.

Tips for driving in Morocco:

  • Speed limits are strictly enforced. In towns and dangerous intersections the speed limit is 40 km/h, infractions can incur on the spot fines.
  • In Morocco driving is on the right
  • All drivers and passengers must wear seatbelts.
  • Carry your license and rental documentation at all times.
