I heard that yesterday and today it is possible to get a drivers license without the need of a letter from the sponsor. I spoke with a representative from Doha Driving Centre (4479 2263) and he also said this was true that permission from the sponsor is not needed, only an eye test and a copy of the QID. Is this really true? Thanks!


Yep, it appears to be true.

The change is expected to be announced sometime this month, according to a report in the Qatar Tribune:

At present, people seeking a driving licence need to go through a lengthy process. 

They are required to provide a letter from the employer and a copy of sponsor’s Company Registration, among other documents, to their respective driving centres to apply for a licence. 

However, the new rules would require the individual to furnish only the personal ID card and an eye-test certificate.
