Iran is a very friendly country. Some hitchhikers on their way to India even decide to stay in Iran instead. Hitchhiking is done in Iran by waving one's arm at an oncoming car, or by dribbling one of your hands. Do not gesture with your thumb up as in the West, because this is an obscene gesture in Persian culture.
In I hitched with the thumb, because several iranian hitchers told me to do so, they were doing the same. Also I noticed many times that locals gave me the thumb as a positive gesture, for example when taking selfies. Waiting for a ride can be a frustrating experience sometimes, but it is generally relatively easy to hitchhike here.
Frustration comes when there is a driver stopping for you every few minutes and suggesting taking you to a bus terminal, and sometimes you may find it hard to explain that you travel at low budget and that you actually want to hitchhike.
When hitchhiking in the north of the country, it might occur that people stop just to ask if you need assistance unrelated to transportation. In fact, you don't stand longer than 10 minutes without some car stopping for you. In Farsi language official language in Iran spoken as a first or second language by most citizens the word "hitchhiking" doesn't exist. The translation of this word found in English-Farsi dictionaries seem to have a confusing effect on locals of Iran since they hear it for the first time in their lives.
Though some people especially couchsurfers or young Tehranians know about it, call it "autostop" or English "hitchhiking". The Farsi majani savar shodan seems to be the closest means driving for free and it is the literal translation of the dictionary though doesn't seem very widely understood also because "savar shodan" means take a lift and most often refer to shared taxis savari so that it may sound as "taking a shared taxi for free" fact that can actually happen kind of often though is not very fair and respectful for the other passengers who however most probably will smile and welcome you.
