Doha Driving Information

Driving is on the right side of the road.

All Doha Hamad Airport rental cars are automatic transmission.

Your local drivers' licence is required.

An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).

Doha Driving Stress Level: 8/10

Three new major road interchanges will to provide access to Doha Hamad Airport from the city and surrounding areas.

Because Doha residents come from all corners of the globe, driving styles vary wildly, and road rage is becoming a problem. Be aware that any gestures (or even eye contact) made with another driver can lead to jail time (!), so keep your cool.

Expect traffic jams and other problems. Expansion of the road network has not kept up with population growth, so you will find numerous diversions due to road construction.

Road maps may not be accurate, due to the addition of new roads, as well as renaming of old roads.
