Re: Driving License

The truth if getting a driving licence in Oman is a huge hassle for Asian expatriates.
It takes time, costs money and is a pain !
Lately there are also lots of rumours of bribery playing a key role in getting the licence.
Best of luck !

Re: Driving License

hi

Re: Driving License

If all goes well, it would be a minimum of about 2-3 months before you can get your driving licence. If you fail the Road test once, to get the next test date will take a minimum of a month because of the rush. So assuming that you pass the Drum test and then the Slope test, then Road might take a couple of tires. Factoring in loads of luck of course !!

Re: Driving License

In case you've not arrived yet to Oman, I would suggest that you get yourself an ‘International Driving Licence’ with which you can drive a 'rent-a-car' here.
This is valid for 1 year. You can gainfully use that time to apply, take your drum, slope and road tests and hopefully obtain a proper Omani driving licence.
Best of luck !

Re: Driving License

GETTING LICENSE IN OMAN IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR INDIANS. WHEN YOU DO DRIVING TEST THE POLICE WILL ALWAYS THINKING TO FAIL YOU BECAUSE THEY WANT TO GIVE STABLE INCOME TO OMANI DRIVING TRAINERS. THIS IS A GAME.THAT'S ALL.

Re: Driving License

Now the situation in oman is Alarming Omanization. This might cause the expats leave the country in another 5-10yrs. Many locals are actively taking their roles in work environment and ready to learn. It is hightime to save your money and return back to India soon..Unless you are confident on your driving and if you have Indian license, go ahead and get GCC License.
