A quick International License to Bahrain License query

Hello all!

I have a EU issued driver's license that I am looking to convert to Bahraini one.  My question is if in the process do the authorities take possession of the EU one or you get to keep it.  I will be traveling back every few months and would like to have the EU license with me for those purposes.

Please share your experiences!

Thanks!

You don't need to surrender US or EU driving licenses physically, to get a Bahrain driving license. To covert you need to provide a copy of your DL along with the requisite forms and pay the fees. However please do check which of the EU countries are on the approved list..

Just make a copy of that driver license , and the officer will match the info , and keep the copy , and btw u dont need any kind of tests , and u will get the bahraini driver license in minutes

Dear,

Normally they ask you to surrender your EU license, yet if you explain the situation they can change the practice, best is to go and ask the Traffic Directorate.
