We havn't driven abroad b4 :? and wanted to visit all across the island - is it reasonably well signposted and easy to drive around the island - and how long would it take us to drive from PB to TIMANFAYA N.P?

Playa Blanca to Timanfaya is approx 25 mins at a slow relaxed pace. Very well sign posted.
You have a choice of 2 roads that run parallel to each other.
LZ-2 newer, faster road and the old "main" road LZ-35.
You never have to rush on the Island.

I find Lanzarote as a whole very easy to drive in, even through Arrecife.

I think the fact that there are so many roundabouts helps, and of course the fact that the roads are so quiet.

Normal junctions can be very confusing at times, roundabouts are so much easier.

If you are not so confident then go on the old road so that you can feel more comfortable about road spacing, you then follow this in to the town of Yaiza and then from the town out on to the national park road. This way you won't need to touch any major roads and can go at whatever pace you like!
