Driving:

Here are some great driving tip to get you through Florida!

The roads are wide and straight with the speed limit a relaxed 55mph.

Please note that you must be at least 21 years of age to hire a car in the US and local charges will apply to any driver is under 25. You need a full Driver's Licence or International driving licence to rent a car in the state of Florida. There is no minimum time for having had a licence. However, you must have your original with you, and if you have the new style photocard, both parts are required. A faxed copy is not acceptable.    

*  Make sure you are driving on the right hand side of the road 
* Be aware that traffic lights are suspended on wires above eye level    
* Right turns, unless otherwise stated, are permitted at a red light, but only if the way is clear and only after making a complete stop.  
* Street signs are small and suspended on wires. The street sign facing you at a junction is the name of the road you are crossing - not the one you are on. 
 * School Buses: On a two way street, cars travelling in both directions stop for a stationary school bus with flashing red lights and remain stopped until the bus moves on. This does not apply if you are driving in the opposite direction and there is a median separating the roads. 
* Most roads have numbers and names and run East / West / North / South.
