Visitor's Driving Permits
As of February 2019, if your stay in the Cayman Islands is less than 30 days, you can simply present your valid drivers license issued from your own country and DO NOT need to purchase a VISITOR'S DRIVING PERMIT.
Any driver who will be in Cayman for more than 30 consecutive days and who does NOT possess a Cayman Islands drivers license or International Driving Permit must purchase a Visitors Driving Permit. This permit is available at the counter for USD $20 per person and is valid for up to 6 months or the duration of your stay, whichever is shorter.
Individuals presenting a valid International Driving Permit along with their full drivers license are automatically exempt from purchasing the Visitor's Driving Permit.
