Hi All

I have recently moved to Qatar from Bharain (GCC Country) and hold a valid Bahraini driving license. I have my QID made and I did apply for Test but they gave date for theory test for August.

1. Can I still drive in Qatar or apply for temporary Drivering License.

2. Is there a way to change theory test date to any earlier date and if Yes, please guide the procedure

3. I need to travel back to Bahrain and I can arrange for a driver to drive my car till Salwa Border but can I cross it my self (Qatar Part) and likewaise coming back from Bahrain/Saudia.

Looking for help here.

First, you should see if the authorities can convert your Bahraini drivers license to a Qatari one. I don't think there is any such thing as a "temporary driver's license" in Qatar, but there are some countries whose drivers license are recognized that allows people to drive in Qatar on their country's license for a certain period of time. Check with the authorities if your country is among them. You can also apply for International Driving License here in Doha that would allow you to drive in Qatar for some time. Second, it may not be possible to shift the theory test to an earlier date as there are many others who are waiting ahead of you. Third, your last query can be answered only by the authorities.
