Before visiting Turkey, it's advisable to do a little research on the rules of the road. It's customary to drive on the right and overtake on the left. Motorways in Turkey are similar to dual carriageways in the UK as they only have two lanes - you'll notice that they are filled with vans and lorries as they don't tend to go on rural roads. Turkey's rural roads are usually filled with potholes so take extra care if you're venturing into the countryside. Turkish drivers can be very unpredictable so drive with caution.
