Driving in Guernsey
The maximum speed limit is 35 miles per hour, and in built up areas and near schools the limit drops to 25 miles per hour. There are also 25mph limits on the coast near popular beaches: Cobo, Rocquaine, and Vazon.
All public parking in Guernsey is free. However, most on-street parking and car parks in principal shopping areas are marked with a disc zone and you must use a “parking clock” to indicate your time of arrival, day or night. The time limit for that particular disc parking starts from the time you parked your vehicle – you must not park for longer than the specified period for that parking place unless that period ends after 6pm, when you mark park until 8am the following morning. Having left a disc parking area, you must not re-park with the same zone for minutes.
Parking clocks may be purchased at a nominal cost, on car ferries, at the Information Office, the Police Station, some garages and retail outlets. Most of the parking near the centre of Town is short-stay (three hours or less). Long-stay parking (five hours or more) is generally further away, and fills up early in the morning. The major Town car parks are on the Harbour pier.
