Malta - Driving and Public Transportation
Applications for a Maltese licence must be made in person at the Licencing and Testing Directorate (LTD) on the DRV.01 application form (available from the Malta transport authority website - http://www.maltatransport.com/en/). You also need to submit a colour passport-sized photo, current driving licence, passport and Maltese identity card, if available. A fee is payable on collection of your Maltese licence. You are not allowed to hold more than one EU-issued driving licence, so your previous licence will be returned to its country of origin.
Driving is on the left in Malta, and the speed limits are 80kph (50mph) on highways and 50kph (30mph) in residential areas. Many of Malta's roads have not been well-maintained, especially outside the main towns.
There are frequent, cheap bus services available, serving all main towns and many villages.
A helicopter service operates frequent services between Malta and Gozo, with flights taking only around 15 minutes. There are also frequent passenger and car ferries between Malta and Gozo, with a journey time of about 30 minutes. Ferries from Malta to Comino operate only between March and November.
