Croatia Driving Checklist

It may have blossomed into one of Europe’s most popular destinations in recent years but there’s still much to discover in this diverse and beautiful country. From its buzzing cities to the enchanting Dalmatian Coast, Croatia is a country that demands to be explored and there’s arguably no better way to do just that than by getting behind the wheel of a car.

Vital documents

  • Full, valid driving licence
  • Proof of Insurance (third party or above)
  • Proof of ID (Passport)
  • Proof of ownership (V5C Certificate)

Other required items

  • Warning triangle. Used to warn oncoming traffic in the event of an accident, a warning triangle is compulsory for all vehicles with four or more wheels. 
  • Headlamp converters. UK cars must be fitted with beam deflectors (or manually adjusted) to avoid dazzling other drivers.
  • A GB sticker
  • A high visibility jacket should be carried in your car at all times and worn at night (or in poor visibility) when exiting an immobilised vehicle on a carriageway. 
  • Safety helmets are compulsory for drivers and passengers of mopeds and motorcycles.
  • A first aid kit is compulsory when driving in Croatia.
  • A fire extinguisher is recommended but not compulsory.
  • You must have dipped (passing) headlights on at night or when visibility is poor. In the winter – between the last Sunday in October and the last Sunday in March - they must also be on during the day. You are legally obliged to carry a spare bulb.
  • Carrying a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is a good idea. This will entitle you to state provided medical care in the event of an accident but shouldn’t be considered as an alternative to travel insurance.
