A driver's license is a legal document issued by the state. It expresses a persons capability to operate a motorized vehicle, such as a motorcycle, car, truck or a bus, on a public roadway.

Laws relating to the issuance of licenses vary between jurisdictions.


A foreign tourist who holds a valid driving license from his own country or an international driving license can use those while in Oman for 3 months. If the individual wishes to stay for a longer period he may opt to exchange his foreign driving license to an Omani License.
