Belgium

Foreign Driver Rating: !! not too bad but very nearly ! easy-peasy

What is there to say about Belgium? The country is constantly on the verge of civil war, or more accurately voting to divide itself. But don’t let that put you off driving there. It’s an EU-standard driving paradise; everything is clean, safe and well-maintained (by global standards). The food in motorway rest areas is particularly good. Leg of lamb, sir? Why yes I think I will.

You will find yourself facing lots of pre-car roads, and in Brussels, trams.
