Driving in Guyana can be both fun and challenging. It can also be dangerous. There are a lot of drunk/inexperienced/unqualified drivers in Guyana. Note that unqualified does not mean uncertified, but the means of certification can be questionable. A lot of bribery and corruption take place with regards to the issuance of licenses to drivers across Guyana. If a person fails the test, for example, they may pay a bribe under the table through various “rum shop channels” and get a driver license. This is often referred to as “buying the book.” The “book” in this sense means the driver’s license.
