    Question Driver License for Overseas Pakistani's help

    AoA everyone.

    I recently moved back to Islamabad from Pakistan and I was wondering about how to get a local drivers license. Right now I am using a international drivers license from the United States but that has only a period of one year before expiration. If you anybody can help me with the following questions, it would be greatly appreciated.

    1. I am US citizen and have a US drivers License, do I have to take the theory and practical test? or can I just apply for the straight license?

    2. Is the process different for a foreign passport compared to Pakistani citizen? (I do have a POC card with a NIC number also)

    3. Is there any other information I would need or to take with me to get a license?

    Thanks!

    - if u got international driving license, u r pretty much ok,

    now if u r on residential visa of pakistan, then goto license office F8, and they ll guide u.. u should be knowing ur blood group...


    and if u don't have the visa, got a Pakistani nationality, make sure to change the current address to islamabad, then goto driving office with it.. they ll make a learner followed by a license,
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    What's your home town in Pakistan? It's rather easy to get a Permanent DL in Sindh and Balouchistan compared to the other provinces.

    Try visiting the traffic police office near to your home, I guess you should directly get a permanent license because you already have one from Saudi Arabia.
