When driving in the UK it is important to remember that the UK is one of the few countries that drive on the left hand side of the road. All passengers must wear seatbelts and speed limits are to be observed. If you have an EEC driving license or a driving license on the UK government's list of designated countries you will be permitted to drive on that license (providing it is valid).
