Karwa Driving School (KDS), a subsidy of Mowasalat was introduced in 2006, while the entire nation was preparing for hosting the 15th Doha Asian Games.
Emerging as one of the business units of Mowasalat, the training school was established with primary objective of setting a modern standard per international driving principles.
It is the only accredited company in GCC by City & Guilds of UK and received various accreditations from different prominent professional driver training organization from the United States and Europe; to name a few: the National Security Council, ROSPA, IRU and the list goes on.
