Ask Louise | Converting a Driving license| Expat Echo Dubai
You may be eligible to transfer your existing driving license, without having to take a driving test or going to a driving school, if you have a valid driving license from some countries. You have to be a citizen of the country given with current resident status in UAE. This means that former residents from these countries who may be holding permanent driver licenses are not eligible and you will have to follow all the steps to get a new license.
Canadian citizen’s require a letter from the Canadian Consulate in Dubai to verify that the license is genuine, before transferring your license.
