This past trip in June, dh felt very comfortable driving, which is not the norm for him Aruba. The two days we rented an SUV to drive around and see this and that, there were no issues. Though I wonder how much Garmin had to do with it.
Driving is pretty unique here as there is very little directions or stop signs/lights anywhere. It's actually a lot of fun as you barely have to wait to get anywhere you want to go. Also the island is so small that getting lost is never really that problematic (happened to us 3x already in 3 days!).

all should drive very defensively not only on aruba but at home, wherever home may be.
Driving in Aruba is easy. If you've driven in metro NY/NJ you will be more than sufficiently equiped to handle "traffic" in Aruba....for real fun, take a drive in any of the Central American countries. Especially Honduras where they find it thrilling to drive around at night without their lights. Or Nicaragua where you have to dodge the chicken buses on winding roads.....Aruba: PIECE OF CAKE.
