Although, Israeli drivers are known as impatient, driving in Israel is not harder than other countries. Foreign visitors, as well as new immigrants and returning citizens, may drive in Israel with their foreign driving permit and International driver licenses in a corresponding category for one year from date of their entry. However, they must be in age which Israel requires for that category. If foreigner stays in Israel more than one year, he/she must obtain an Israeli driver license. For exchanging foreign driver license to Israeli, it is required (category: motorcycle, passenger car, and vehicles up to 15 tons):
If an applicant has held a valid foreign driver license at least two years before entering Israel, he/she may be exempted from the vehicle control capability test.
In Israel, road signs are generally in Hebrew, English, and Arabic. All roads are numbered accordingly to their direction. Roads with even numbers run from the north to the south of country; low numbers indicate roads that are closer to the south. Odd numbered roads run from the east to the west; low numbers indicate roads that are closer to the west. Road number 6 is only a toll road in Israel. If you rent a vehicle in Israel, you will sign an agreement not to drive on the road number 6. Otherwise, you will be required to pay later after your term of lease. For renting a car, drivers should be over 21 years and no older than 75 years old, and you must hold a valid driving license. We recommend you to obtain an International driver license before your will rent a car in Tel Aviv.

On some roads, you may meet roadblocks. To reduce problems, always carry your passport as well as your driver license while driving. It is not allowed to cross the border to Sinai or Jordan with hired vehicles.
