The tourist district of the Amalfi Coast has synthesized in Anglo-Saxon language all the rules relative to the Anas ordinance on the plan of alternating license plate in Amalfi Coast and Sorrento Coast.
Since 2019, to better manage the touristic flow during the busy season, Amalfi Coast governors have devised a plan of alternating license plate system on the Amalfi Coast Drive (SS 163 from Positano to Vietri Sul Mare).
The plane becomes effective on the Easter Week. These rules apply to cars belonging to people non-resident on the Amalfi Coast.
Cars serving disabled people having the H card and with on board the holder of it, cars belonging to locals, taxis and buses are exempt.
Cars with a license plate ending in a odd number cannot drive Amalfi Coast Drive on odd numbered days.
Cars with a license plate ending in a even number cannot drive Amalfi Drive on even numbered days.
The rule take effects
- from 10 am to 6 pm on the Easter Week
- on the weekends (Saturdays and Sundays)
- from 15th June to 30th September, and on the entire month of August.
It will also be effective on some holidays, long weekends are also included (from April 24th to May 2th).
In addition to the license plate system, any vehicle that is longer than 10,36 metres (34 foot), including vehicles pulling trailers, are banned from 6.30 am to midnight, all year long.
If you are a guest of an official accomodation of the Amalfi Coast, you are allowed to get to your accomodation on the planned day and drive back on the planned departure day, even if your license plate does not align with mandatory dates, by showing your reservation.
You won’t know the number of your license plate until you pick up your rental car, so it’s impossible to plan in advance which days to drive in Amalfi Coast.
