Traffic drives on the left in Uganda The roads are of variable quality and radiate from Kampala, although the network is sparse in the north. There are still some army and police check points on roads and railways. Always keep vehicle doors locked.

Many of the minor roads and side roads are made of hard packed earth (murum) and, when graded, are quite quick and reasonable. However, they will deteriorate in heavy rains and wash boarding frequently occurs. The best way to deal with the wash boarding is not to slow down, but to find a speed sympathetic to the road surface and effectively skip from ridge to ridge. Non-tarred roads, if wet, may be impassable in the mountainous regions of the south-west. Commercial drivers of buses and trucks compound the danger, as do pedestrians, livestock, cyclists, dogs and the odd police roadblock.

Avoid patches of grass or savanna for parking during the dry season since there is a risk that hot engine parts might spark off a fire.

The speed limit is 80 kph (50 mph) or 100 kph (62 mph) on highways.

An International Driving Permit and adequate third-party insurance is required. UK driving licences are accepted. The driver must be 23 years old and a holder of a valid full driving licence for a period of more than two years. Drivers must carry their vehicle log books and must pay for a temporary road licence. Valid road licence can be received from the Road Transport Office/revenue Authority offices in Kampala.
