Thank for your comments and please don't try to comment if you not know properly. i was contact the driving school and they said yes possible to take intermediate driving licence. that mean is only for personal use light vehicle. if you have any doubt please review the driving license application and there mentioned monocular vision.

You have two eyes, so the brain can calculate the distance of an object by comparing the light reaching the iris at different times. Your condition doesn't allow you to estimate any distance. You won't be able to get a clearance for driving in Qatar.

If you believe that "someone", it is up to you. Just go over or call any driving school and ask them. They will let you know.

In driving, having proper eye sight is of very great importance and absolutely essential. An eye test carried out by a qualified doctor is mandatory and is the first step towards applying for a driving license.

No, you cannot.

When any one goes for a driving license, it is mandatory for the person to go for an eye test and both eyes are checked for proper visibility. No doctor will certify you are fit for driving when you have very poor visibility in one eye.

It is a fact that a single eye does not allow for complete vision of all surrounding areas that one can get with both eyes and this may lead to accidents. You should be knowing of this from your own experience.
