Number plates

There are two types of car number plates on vehicles in Qatar… the old and the new.

Old number plate

The new design comes from a decision taken by Gulf Cooperation Council to unify specifications across the region.

Although the regulation came into effect 12 months ago, the Traffic Department has announced that vehicle owners will be granted one month’s grace period as many drivers had still not yet yet changed their plates during the one year allowed.

The new plates will make the plates much easier to read by the seemingly unpopular speed cameras which are now cropping up along some of the main roads.
