Motorists in Samoa will begin practicing how to drive on the left side of the road next week.

Samoa is to formally switch to driving on the left hand side in the middle of next year.

The chief executive of the LTA, Leasi John Galuvao, told Samoa media this week that part of the Tuanaimato Sports Complex, has been set up for members of the public who want to practice driving on the left hand side of the road.

LTA staff and Police will be present to brief and train the public during that time.

The area designated for the driving trials has 16 traffic light signals geared for left side driving.
