Probably everyone knew this (except me) but there is a Ministry of the Interior kiosk in City Center, one floor down from Carrefour, that does car registration renewals. We had ours done in, no kidding, less than five minutes! Considering the time and effort it took to get the vehicle insurance renewed, this was a miracle.

Hi Mandi, is your car less than 3 years old? coz if your car is more than 3 years old, you would have to get your vehicle inspected before you can do all the easy stuff, and the inspection part is where it can get messy.

you don't need to line-up for the insurance renewal, registration renewal. If the vehicle is cleared at inspection, you can leave your papers at one of the porta cabins at Madinah Khalifa, and just go back on agreed time, presto, you have your new registration!

Yes you can pay someone to do it for you. We always hire someone to go to the Industrial Area, do the inspection and then take the car and get it registered. I think it's worth it not to go through the hassle. I avoid the industrial are at all costs!!!

is to go there between 1~3 pm, not much volume of vehicles being inspected. You're out within 30 minutes.

Mandi you made my day! Just did the insurance renewal today (did it at Al Khaleej - main branch on Grand Hamad - didn't take much more than 5 minutes).

Just noticed this evening that there's an MoI kiosk at the Mall - any idea if they do it there as well? Either way, good news!

By rachela• 7 years 3 months ago.

And for AAA - would they also deal with taking the car in for service? Any idea? That is my most hated car related task...!

Greeting everyone,

I have a 2007 model vehicle, if I have to go for technical inspection this year or it will be counted as 3rd renewal this year (without inspection)? I think I have to do inspection however a friend with 2006 model car got the registration renewed without inspection last year.

Also, a query regarding points on violating traffic rules. If you get 3 points (for wrong parking), how long it takes that these points go away from your history? Is it a year or within 5 years of license validity or forever?

Regards,

your car has to be inspected before re-registering. The same has happened to me, 3rd renewal before the 3 years came up and I had to have it done.

No idea about the points - I have the same 3 points on my license for parking outside the Doha Clinic and a year later they are still on my license...!

Thanks alumnar for replying.

Where did you go for inspection? Any details?
