Cyprus Traffic Laws - Offences, Fines and Points

Here is a list of the main traffic offences in Cyprus. This list is not exhaustive but is a comprehensive guide.

I have highlighted several offences in red that may be of interest to visitors.

Some of the offences listed without penalty points may attract them at a later date. For some offences the fine may also be increased.

On reaching twelve penalty points the courts will normally disqualify a driver from driving and suspend the driving licence. Currently penalty points are removed three years after the day on which they were imposed.

The penalty point system is currently under review. Details can be found http://cyprusdriving.net.

Drink driving. The limit is lower than UK.
