Hi All,
I just arrived to Bahrain this week, my UAE driving license is expired on the day i arrived, what will be the procedure for me to obtain a Bahrain Driving License. Is this few days expired driving license has any value to convert it to Bahrain License, or i have to go through complete process from scratch?

Hi,

Try visiting traffic directorate in Isa town immediately, try to explain it to them, if they agree your lucky or else you may have to go through the process from the scratch

Hi,

I m sure they will not hesitate to accept it if recently got expired 😦😦 .
Please visit Driving school's License section and ask them , if you are willing to stay here for longer period of time . Then you should convert it to Bahraini one .

Dear Khush Singh, you seems to have more experience then any one else here kindly let me know about my problem, I arrived Bahrain on 26th of Dec and same day my UAE driving license expired, now it is obvious that i need some time to get CPR, what should I do to get the Bahraini Driving License.

I am staying on Exhibition road, and there is one directorate in front of my place as well. can i go there...?

:D yeah im the best
I'm trying to make things easy for you
1) If you are in the kingdom you are already holding CPR number go and check your Onarrival Visa Page ( NOC) or passport .
2) once you're in the kingdom your employer can book for you CPR appointment 1bhd only . Call him

3) visit the link for appointment
http://www.sc.appointment.gov.bh/appoin … ndex.faces
Available from 4th of January.
4) just visit the Driving school and show them your expires license and passport , they will not ask about the CPR .
5) enter the license section and go for counter number 15 . Dont waste your time on reception..
6) don't waste your time go tomorrow
😂😂😝gud luck ,

Dont waste your time on exhibition road or here and there ,
Just visit Driving School After crossing Salmabad ... Take the taxi And reach there at 7:30am  (7am-2pm ) (2-5 heavy)
Happy holidays

Hi

Welcome to Bahrain

Depending on where the expired license is from there may be value in the minimum time of retraining required. If it is from the GCC for example, you will only be asked to take 6 hours of training which you can manage in three days.

Regards

Dear Khush Singh,

How much does it cost over all to learn driving in Bahrain n do u have to pay all at once

Ishika1283 :

How much does it cost over all to learn driving in Bahrain n do u have to pay all at once

1) 34.500bhd for learning licence
2) 5 bhd  for every one  hour training
total 22hours x 5bhd
3) 10bhd for test date
4)
20bhd for real licence if pass  😉
no need to pay all at once , just in steps ☠️

very helpful information on this thread but just wanted to check one thing. For a UK citizen to go and get a Bahrain license, is the office open on a Saturday? We heard it was but Google Maps says it's not.

Original passport is mandatory to collect licence form,, Plz advice

:blink: Don't worry at the time of lecture you will get all the information about next procedure , you may ask them any question on the same time .
:) as requested its not compulsory to look for the instructor on same day , you can go for training after 1year or 2  year until you pay for learning licence renewal 10bhd yearly.  :D

Check your inbox for instructor's cell number(sent)  :|

Thank you Dear for your suggestions, I received instructor number as well.

One more question: Once I completed 22 hours training period, usually after how many days they are providing the exam date. (Approximately)

Hi,

well it depends, i have heard that the waiting period now has reached 6-8months.

Thanks  a lot for your  Guidance ...

I need my bahrain license's enquiry .. so please is there anybody who can tell me .. how I can get it

Yes what is your question please.

I need my bahrain license's enquiry . But I'm in canada now please tell me how I can get it.

Here you see General Directorate of Traffic Bahrain Official website
http://www.traffic.gov.bh/
But for now its under construction.
And here is the services online Traffic Services link

For general in Bahrain It's right hand drive. And as i know in Canada also right hand drive so its easy for you to visit Traffic and Licensing Directorate office and get bahrain driving license.

yes dear

I have already contacted with them but the department general directorate of traffic is under construction so that's why they are not responding any call or any email . I'm asking is there any other way to contact with them ? Please tell me if it has

I dont think so there is any other way, We could help you if you could post your query here.

Hey!
Is this still available? In the sense, Im here in Bahrain for 3 months on visiting visa. Can I still learn and get a driving license?
Thanks
