THOUGHT OF SHARING MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WHICH MIGHT HELP AT LEAST A FEW :)

VEHICLE INSPECTION in "FAHES" is MADE TRICKY & CONFUSED, DESPITE INTENDED TO EASE-UP THE PROCESS as detailed below;

- ON-LINE APPOINTMENT IS MANDATORY (But Registering the User is ALWAYS end-up with an error)

- ONLY GUEST MODE WAS WORKING UNTIL 08/08/2022, BUT EASY INDEED.

- ALSO THE SECURITY IN THE GATE OF "FAHES, AL-WAKRAH" (ON 08/08/2022, EVENING AROUND 5 PM) WERE HARSH & RUDE IN GUIDING THE CAR OWNERS.

- RE-INSPECTION IS ALSO REQUIRES ANOTHER APPOINTMENT FOR ANOTHER DAY IN GENERAL !?! (RATHER NOT ASKING FOR ANY FEE OBVIOUSLY)

- WORKING TIME IS UNTIL 6 PM, BUT THE GATE CLOSED @ 5:45 PM, EXCEPT FRIDAY & SATURDAY.

- MY ISTIMARA EXPIRED LAST MONTH 16--th, STILL AN AMBIGUITY IN THE GRACE PERIOD EITHER TO BE 1 MONTH OR 45 DAYS OFFICIALLY.

- RENEWING THE INSURANCE IS NOT ESSENTIALLY REQUIRE THE TEST-PASS STATUS (AT-LEAST FOR THE MANDATORY 3-RD PARTY INSURANCE)

- FULL INSURANCE IS PROVIDED ONLY FOR YEAR-2014 & ABOVE CARS IN GENERAL BY ALMOST ALL OF THE VEHICLE INSURANCE PROVIDERS I HECKED (QIC & QGIC)

- 3-RD PARTY INSURANCE COSTS Qr. 400/- FOR SALOON CARS & Qr. 500/- FOR THE "SUV" CARS, MINE IS HONDA, CR-V (NO OFFER IS AVAILABLE FOR THE 3-RD PARTY INSURANCE)

HAVE A NICE MOMENTS & HAPPY DRIVING :)
