Yes it is. They drive on the left and all the signs are dual language. I've hired cars for 2 different Cyprus breaks with no probs. I hired Easycar from Paphos airport via an internet site.

If you want to go to the occupied zone, some hire companies won't insure you, so you have to leave your car in southern Nicosia and walk through. However some car hire companies do allow this, so if you want to go north, check before booking.

Very easy to negotiate your way round the island but don't be tempted to exceed the speed limits - the police dislike speeding tourists and you will get an instant fine and severe reprimand.

Yes, but like other places street signs can be hard-to-impossible to find. I would use a GPS if possible.
