How to apply for new UAE driving license

by | Feature

Jul. 01, 18 | 2:33 pm

DUBAI: Just like anywhere else in the world, you’ve got to first secure a driver’s license before getting behind the wheel in the UAE. It does not only allow you to drive legally. It is considered as an official government issued ID as well.

So, if you want to get a new UAE driver’s license, here’s how.

In getting a driver’s license in the UAE, there is only one required document – your valid Emirates ID. An applicant must also pay according to the following service fees:

– Dh100 for issuing a new driving license if the customer is younger than 21-years-old
– Dh300 for issuing a new driving license if the customer is older than 21-years-old
– Dh20+ for knowledge and innovation fees

Step-by-step process in service centers:

– The customer submits all the documents at the driving institutes or registration offices licensed by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA)
– The driving institute opens a traffic file for the customer
– The customer undergoes an eye test at one of the authorised optical shops by RTA
– The customer receives the permit to start the driving lessons
– In case the customer passes the tests, he receives a license from the driving institute
– In case the customer fails, he must take 8 new lessons and book another appointment for the final driving test.

Other necessary information, terms and conditions, and frequently asked questions are in the website of RTA.

Driver Experience Certificate

If you already have a driver’s license in the UAE and you would like to have a Driver Experience Certificate to certify the years of your driving experience, here’s how. This certificate can help you with future employment or other purposes.

To get one, your original driving license would be the required document. Service fees of Dh50 will be charged plus another Dh20 for the knowledge and innovation fees.

There are two ways to get a Driver Experience Certificate

Online:

– The customer enters the driving license number
– The customer is required to pay all the due fines by credit card
– The customer receives the certificate.

Offline:

– The customer submits the driving license
– The customer is required to pay all the due fines in person
– The customer receives the certificate.

A Driver Experience Certificate is valid for 2 months from the date of issuance.

Disclaimer: Information stated above may be subject to change depending on RTA’s decision. Keep updated by visiting their website.
