After recently arriving in Doha from USA, I am ready to buy a used car. I am sure that buying a used car from a dealership is easy because they help you through the process. But I plan to buy a used car from a private seller. I hope to get some advice from readers on what I must do to be able to drive the car. I have my USA licence and international permit but not my RP yet. My wife has her RP but no Qatar driver licence yet.
Here are some questions that I hope someone can answer:
After I look the car over and agree on price, is cash the expected way to pay? (car costs 54,000 QAR)
After payment can I drive the car home with USA licence and international permit?
Do the old and new owner need to go together to the insurance company and title transfer office to do the paperwork or can I do that myself?
How soon must this be done? Will these places will be open during EID?
Is there anything else to do other than the insurance and title is transfer?.
Thanks for your advice.
