Locar Deals is here again with a raging topic that people have been asking for a long time. When cars in question, how can anyone forget about the related activity called driving? The United States Of America is one of those starting nations that welcomed automobiles in their lives. The country has evolved ever since and has obtained a particular style of driving that people have been following for years.

What driving style? Let me explain.

There are two kinds of hand drive when it comes to driving a vehicle. One is a right-hand drive, and the other one is a left-hand drive.

In right-hand drive vehicles, the steering wheel is on the right side of the car. That’s right. The complete opposite to the left-hand drive cars we see on the road.

Owning a right-hand-drive car is not illegal in America. Many business purpose vehicles like postal services, delivery services, etc., use right-hand drive vehicles.

And further people use them after their retirements. So if you ever encounter a righthand drive vehicle on the road, don’t get startled.

All the vehicles, whether right-hand drive or left-hand drive, follow the same traffic rules, same routes & patterns for driving.

Both the drivers will drive on the right side of the road, and it is perfectly normal.

Right-Hand-Drive Vehicle

Let me help you understand the concept of right-hand drive vehicles a little better. There almost 80 countries around the world that drive on the left side of the road.

That’s right. We said it.

Those countries drive vehicles that have steering wheels planted on the right side of the front seat of the car.

The vehicle’s movement, turn, and rules are opposite to what we see in America.

Does America have abundant right-hand drives?

When it comes to America and the right-hand driving vehicles, the level has not reached to be called abundant.

It is not like that America never had right-hand drives. Many government authority vehicles are right-handed.

But now, people are getting more and more fascinated by the concept of owning something unique and different.

You can see a person driving a right-hand drive car now and then. But what is shocking is that American people are drifting towards such cars. They find them attractive and mysterious to drive.

Are there different rules for driving such cars?

Whether you own an affordable ride or one of the most expensive cars in the world, the traffic rules and manners are the same for everyone.

Just because you are driving a right-hand drive instead of a left-hand one doesn’t mean you control the rules and roads.

The drivers of right-hand cars also follow the same rules as others. They drive on the right side of the road and takes the same traffic instructions.

The only difference is in the orientation of the driving area. It can be hard at first to adjust to a car that completely displaces the steering wheel to the other side, but with the usage, you get used to it.

How can I get a right-hand drive?

Many top car brands in America are making right-hand drives, but mostly they are luxurious models. If you can afford some of the most expensive cars in the world, you can easily get one.

But if not, here are a few ways you can go for.

  1. Do it yourself

You read it. If you want to own a car that has the steering wheel to its right, then what’s better than making it all by yourself?

You can do some changes in your vehicle yourself or with some outside help and remodel your car from left-hand driving to right-hand driving.

It will take your energy and time, but it will be less expensive than going for a top-class luxurious car.

  1. Custom made

Well, money can do wonders for you in this case. Many companies provide cars on custom orders.

If you can afford the price, you can have any company of your choice that makes a custom model for you with everything you need.

You can have your right-hand drive made from scratch with top-class features by a top car brand in America.

  1. Importing

You can own a right-hand car by importing it from a country where such cars are common. 

But make sure you have made yourself familiar with the laws related to importing & exporting of America as well as the country you are going to import it from.

This again is a slightly costly method to own such a car.


Cars have always fascinated people. They are known to go above and beyond to get what they find attractive.

But Locar Deals suggests before you go for anything it is better to make yourself prepared and learn everything on the matter.

So if you want to own a right-hand driving vehicle, you must learn everything about them. We hope this article helps you in the process.
