Left-hand drive vehicles are available in the United Kingdom and also in right-hand areas worldwide. The majority of the world’s population drives on the right side of the road. Generally, the driver’s seat is on the left side of the vehicle, but this is not always the case.


Most European Union states allow you both right-hand drive and left-hand drive vehicle choices. Choose a left-hand drive vehicle if you plan to do most of your driving in the United Kingdom.

About Left Hand Drive

Left hand drive vehicles continue to appeal to those people looking to purchase the same type of vehicle that they learned to drive in. After all, comfort and experience is a big part of driving capability. Not everyone wants to re-learn to drive in a vehicle that doesn’t feel right to them and understandably so.

In terms of purchasing left-hand drive vehicles second hand, the usual rule of 'buyer beware' remains key. It's important to carry out the necessary research to make sure that the vehicle in question is in good condition and that there aren't any nasty technical problems that will make their presence felt within a week or two of the transaction being completed.

It's also worth remembering that almost all countries have laws regarding vehicles being imported (a common part of the sales process due to the fact that only certain countries actually manufacture LHD vehicles). It's also important to make sure that there are no hidden charges as part of the sale.

Furthermore, you must check the legalities of owning one of these vehicles. Some countries actually outright ban the registration of LHD vehicles. It’s illegal in Kenya and in Australia registration is only allowed on vintage cars such as those that are over 30 years old. Imported LHD vehicles that are less than 30 years old must be converted before they are legal to be driven. LHD vehicles are also illegal in India and drivers wishing to use them in New Zealand must have a LHD permit to drive those vehicles that have been privately imported into the country.

Within the EU, both LHD and RHD drive vehicles are largely legal, although again, it’s important to double check before making any investments.
