Hello

Concerning your 2 questions:

The entry visa to Egypt can be done in 2 ways , The first one is to get it from the airport upon arriving Cairo or any other Airport or port for only 12 US$ per person you can buy it in a certain Bank at the same arrival station and it is open 24 Hours. The second way is to ask for your visa in the Egyptian Embassy in your country and this is a matter of 1 week + or - and it is in between 25 to 50 US$ depending on which country.

The second question about your driver permission:
You can ask (in your country before coming) for an international driver permission which you can have from the International Car Club.

With this one you can drive in Egypt with out no problem , The only think that i do not really recommend you to try to drive in Egypt as the international rules are really not very considered and even i can say it is not that safe for some one does not getting to drive in Egypt normally.

If you need any help please feel free to mail me on this e-mail
