Some recommendations for driving your car rental in Brazil

Driving in Brazil can sometimes be more than an option and also very stressful, due to the poor quality of the road and because of the cities’ public transportation system. In Brazil, according to their law, foreigners are allowed to drive round the country for up to 180 days with the foreigner’s country driver’s license, so far it is valid. After the 180 days of grace period, you must apply for some test in the country in order to obtain your license. The minimum age for drivers in Brazil is 18 years, but most car rental company often insist on the age of 21 or 23 years.

Most of Brazil’s roads are not the safest of places to drive in the world due to unpredictable drivers, roads, high rate of accidents and theft. It is necessary to carry a fire extinguisher and first aid kit always in the car. It is a normal practice when driving in Brazil for drivers to warn cars behind them not to pass by them by flashing the left signal. This indicate it is not safe for the driver to overtake. While cars that are coming towards you flash their headlights when they want to warn you of an impending danger or obstacles such as the presence of an animals or the presence of the police on the road ahead. In Brazil, there are no laws that requires truck drivers from stopping regularly and rest, so trucks should always be viewed with caution.

The best road in Brazil are often found closer to the state capitals, and within a hundreds of kilometer from the coast. In Brazil, pedestrian crossing signs are completely ignored in most places with only a few exception, such as in Brasilia. Any lane could be a turning lane, and stop signs would be better described as a yield sign. Due to the constant incidence of car-hijacking and robbery at traffic lights in Brazil, drivers are permitted not to stop at red light at night in major cities like Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Drivers should always keep their doors locked and windows rolled up at night, particularly at junctions. Always drive cautiously at night, because it is not uncommon to see drivers driving at night without their headlight on, and a lot of drivers drive dangerously and disregard the road rules.

Roads in Brazil can be government-financed only, while some might have some tolls. The price at various tolls may vary from $1.50 to R$20, depending on the road, the number of booths spread along the highway and the type of vehicle you are driving. Many highways have speed guns to reduce driver’s speed, so as to prevent them from going too fast, but their presence and the speed limits must be informed according to the law. However, their exact location can remain unknown to new drivers along the location.

The Rio de Janeiro-Galeao International Airport is located in front of the present passenger terminal of the Brazilian Air force.

In terms of area, the Galeao International airport is known as the largest airport site in Brazil. The airport is located 20km away from the city center of Rio de Janeiro.
