Very useful . So after completing the 22 hours practical driving session. How many days you have to wait for the test ?

While you are close to finishing your lessons you can apply for a test date online where you can select the available dates and time. Normally within a week for guys and a day or two for girls.

I am still stuck in first step. I live in hidd. So which place to go for learners license first ? Muharraq or Al Ali. ? I have seen AlAli traffic directorate office on map but where is it in muharraq ?

The new services is the registration and licencing, minor traffic accidents, renewing driving licence and booking driving test appointments. These services will be available from Sunday to Thursday from 7:00 am to 7:00 PM.
