Renewal of vehicle licences can be done in person at the Royal Oman Police licence renewal centres in Oman as well as through online channels – ROP website as well as ROP mobile app. While the renewal fee for a light private vehicle licence is RO20, citizens can renew it for a 10 year period while expatriates can renew it for only 2 years at a time.
Before renewal of vehicle licences, one must pay up all ROP fines for traffic offences listed against the vehicle’s registration to speed up the process. Also, one must undertake a vision test at any of the approved optometrists in Oman who will directly convey your results to the ROP. There is no need for a hard copy of the vision test.
After that follow the step by step procedure and get your licence printed at any nearby service centre. But remember, you cannot renew your vehicle licences in advance, if the renewal date is more than 30 days away.
