Traffic Department releases list of professionals restricted from seeking drivers’ licenses

Qatar’s Traffic Department has made public the list of professionals who are ineligible for drivers’ licenses. This list in English is an unofficial translation of the initial list, which was originally made available only in Arabic. However, a few driving schools that JustHere spoke, were not informed about the official list.

An unofficial list was available in July this year, which restricted many professionals, particularly ‘labourers’ from seeking drivers’ licenses. However the ambiguity over the term ‘labourers’ resulted in a drop in revenues for many driving schools. Read JustHere’s earlier report here

    There are so many people on this list which are Tradies. What is a plumber meant to do, take all of his stuff in the taxi? Do you want to take the fishermans catch in your taxi? And I guess horses will have to get their own drivers….
