With this permit, you will be allowed to drive for up to three months from entry into Doha. Although 18 years is the minimum age requirement to obtain a driving licence in Doha, for car hire the minimum age for drivers is 21 years old. You will also need to produce a valid form of identification as in an ID document or passport. Passports are a must for international drivers.

You will be driving on the right-hand side of the road. It is compulsory to wear a seatbelt for the driver and passengers in the car. Children under the age of 12 years old are not allowed to sit in the front seat. It is completely illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol which means you must have a blood alcohol level of 0% when operating a vehicle. It is imperative that you follow the speed limits to avoid receiving fines.

Driving your car hire in Doha city and exploring the surrounding desert areas is easy and straightforward. The roads are well maintained and easy to navigate with wide roads and good traffic controls. We would recommend large, four-wheel drives as you can go from the city to the desert without any issues. A car like the Honda CR-V has all the features of a luxury car that boasts all-wheel drive, perfect for city driving, and can switch to a four-wheel drive. Feel free to choose an automatic as the cost of fuel is cheap and the roads system is well arranged, making driving a pleasure.
Doha is a busy city, especially during the week, during working hours. Parking spaces on the streets can be hard to find during these times. It's a better idea for you to make use of the multi-story car parks across the city. These parking lots do operate at hourly rates. You will also find parking lots in all shopping centres and hotels. When the city streets get quieter, you will have access to the metered street parking spaces. Parking fees are reasonable for these spaces and they are usually charged by the hour. There is no time limit on these spaces.
