The Guyana Driving Manual 2012

Newcomers to driving in Guyana, either born here or recently come here, are at some disadvantage with the material given to them by the Motor Vehicle Licence Office.  That information gets you familiar with the rules of the road, the laws and the penalties – the conventions in Guyana – but there is a host of vital information about local conditions that you have to discover by trial and error.
