Dear All;

I have a Kuwait driving license. Is it possible to convert those license to Oman driving license.

Regards;

Hi! I have a US Driver's license but it just expired this July. Wasn't able to renew it cuz I've been here in Oman and recently got my residence ID. Can I just convert my license to Omani or I still need to undergo those tedious tests? Thanks! :)

Hi! I already got my green booklet. I've been driving for a long time and had a US driver's license but the ROP did not consider it coz it was already expired (wasn't able to renew it when I was in Hawaii back then). Anyway, I am Asian who lived in the US for a while. I've read some posts that before I get an instructor to help me with getting the license I should take the traffic sign test first to cut down on the expenses. Is this true? I asked the ROP during that time that I got my booklet and they told me something about waiting for 10 days and then when I ask them "what's the next step?" They told me to get a teacher. Now I am confused as to whether to hire an instructor first or take the traffic sign test first. Please, if anyone can enlighten me on this, I would very much appreciate it. Also,  If any of you have any suggestion for a good instructor who is trustworthy, please let me know by sending me a private message. Thank you!

Sir, I have a query in obtaining the driving license. I am holding UAE Driving License for Automatic. I have moved to Oman for employment and heard that it is not possible to convert to Oman Driving License -Automatic Gear Vehicles. But, when searched on the net, there is an article from Times of Oman that ROP clarified clearly that they can change / convert into Oman Driving License with a condition to drive Automatic cars only and if they need to drive manual vehicles, then a test is mandatory. Please help me with your feedback.

Hi borzmd,

The Traffic Sign test is nothing more knotty than making you stand before a framed poster of the various traffic signs and asking you to tell the ROP instructor what is what, as randomly questioned by him.

Note that you should tell the traffic symbols in a way that the instructor would know and understand. For this, you would need the help of a local instructor. Only they will teach you the known lingo.

Secondly, without a local trainer, an expat has little or no access to anything official. So you cannot go and book a test, or ask anybody any clarifications.

You necessarily need the assistance of a local trainer who would know all the processes and even the personnel who would be involved with the licence issuing procedures.
