Driving and Parking in Muscat

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to rent a car in Muscat. You will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Muscat, take a look at our page about renting a car in Oman.

E-Parking, set up by Muscat Municipality, employs a range of services across several platforms and allows drivers to make payments by different methods. This flexible system has greatly eased congestion in the city, and is both flexible and convenient.

Driving in and around Muscat

Key routes

There is a well-developed road network in Muscat, with several main arterial roads that branch out into a larger number of secondary routes connecting all parts of the city. It’s a simple matter to drive to any destination and see all the attractions by hire car using these wide and well-maintained thoroughfares.

Al Amrat Road and Nizwah Road intersect with the arterial Al Sultan Qaboos Road and are convenient secondary roads for accessing northern and southern districts of the city.

Two of the city’s main crossroads are at Ruwi and Rusail, from where landmarks like the Corniche and Muscat Harbour are easily accessed.

Major Highways

The main east-west route through Muscat is via the Al Sultan Qaboos Street, which merges into Al Nahdah Street close to Al Wattayah. Use this main road as a starting point for exiting via secondary routes for other parts of Muscat. Also, bear a few things in mind while driving along this and other roads in and around Muscat:

• Drive on the right hand side of the road in Muscat and other parts of Oman
• Speed limits are indicated in kph and many road signs indicate dual limits, for normal and heavy vehicles.
• Roads are well-maintained and regularly re-rolled.
• Signs are written in Arabic and English.
• In residential areas the speed limit is usually 80kph, which is rather higher than in Europe and the States, but there are lots of speed humps too.
• Pay particular attention to the pedestrian crossings, especially zebra crossings.
• There are speed cameras along most major roads. Fines tend to be minimal and spot checks infrequent, but always carry driver documentation just to be on the safe side.
