Dear Sir/Mam,
I made the car license in 2014 and on that time my Position was (Post) as a Driver and after that I changed the co. and then they changed my position also but Traffic department cancelled my license for 2 years.
So if my co. again put my driver visa and then I can get easily the driving license after 2 years?

Please give reply for this matter.

If the licenses were issued illegally than who is to be blamed , public or the traffic authorities. Get hold of the authorities who issued those licences illegally. There is signature on the application form of passing the candidate for getting licence .They are waiting for what?

First government should provide bus facilities for all areas like hospitals and visiting parks and sea side. There is no bus from abbasia to doha or sharq tower or sea side areas... Pls consider this and reduce traffic
