Driving licence

At present Oman has very limited public service. Within a city there are taxis available for commuting. Within a limited area ONTC buses are available and luxury coaches ply between major cities.

It is advisable to learn driving if your job profile requires a lot of travel and meeting clients during marketing calls. Also, getting about in a city is easier with your own vehicle. Second hand cars are easily available for competitive rates.  But getting a dirving license is easier said than done.

You have to apply for a learners license at the Royal Oman Police’s Directorate of Traffice

For light vehicle driving license an applicant must have completed 18 years of age, and 21 years for heavy duty vehicle and truck driving licenses.
