With public transport systems still under way in Qatar, and good roads, private cars (left hand drive) are the main mode of transport.
Traffic can be heavy during peak hours, usually early morning and early evening. The maximum speed limit is 120 km/h out of town and between 80 km/h and 100 km/h in town, depending on the area.
If you’ve just arrived in Qatar, you must exchange your driving licence for a Qatari licence within a week. Some nationalities can do this without taking a driving test.
Only residents can buy a car in Qatar. But once your residence visa is issued, buying a brand-new car is easy.
If you want a car that’s almost new, you can find very good deals on used cars. Salwa Road has many used car dealers and is the most popular destination.
Negotiating a price will almost certainly land you a good deal, but remember to always check for the manufacturers guarantee.
To transfer ownership, you and the current owner simply go to the traffic department and complete the necessary paperwork. If you need a taxi, call Karwa Taxi, the state-owned Taxi Company run by Mowasalat, Qatar’s public transport company. To book a taxi, call 4458 8888.
Unlike other banks, at Barwa Bank we offer a dedicated Car Finance product to take the worry out of buying a new car for the family. Shari’ah compliant, flexible, quick and easy, this is the fastest route to getting your new dream car. Our pre-approved* car finance offer entitles you to an auto finance facility even before your employment has been confirmed!
Not only that, you also get up to 15,000 complimentary Barwa Bank Loyalty Points convertible to Qatar Airways Privilege Club Qmiles! (please refer to Bonus Points Eligibility Criteria for more details on loyalty points)
