guide on how to get your dubai drivers license

You can lease a car and drive on your foreign exchangeable or international license (if it has been valid for at least one year) from any country prior to your residence visa being complete. Once your residence visa is stamped in your passport you will be required to obtain a UAE driver’s license in order to drive a rented or privately-owned vehicle.  Residents, who are eligible to transfer their home country Driver’s License, should submit an application along with the required documents at any branch of the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA). The application form has to be completed, stamped and signed by the applicant and the sponsor. The RTA office will process the application on the spot, take a picture of you and issue your UAE driver’s license. Move One can help you complete the transfer.

traffic-signs-dubai-150x150People taking driving tests in Dubai now have to spot potential dangers in five short videos. Five more questions have been added to the theoretical exam for a driving license in Dubai, testing the trainees’ ability to assess risks on the road and respond to these risks.
Five videos lasting 25 seconds each depict specific environmental conditions and a set of unique associated road risks, posing the question how the driver-to-be would cope with them, explained Ahmed Bahrozyan, CEO of Dubai RTA’s Licensing Agency.
“Examples of these include conditions related to driving in rainy weather, highways, school zones, desert areas, densely populated or market areas with high pedestrian traffic, residential areas and night driving.”
The questions are already doing rounds, as they were added on July 1 this year.

Electronic tagDubai Police considers plans to electronically tag vehicles of offending motorists in a move aimed at removing the need for impounding thousands of vehicles and urging drivers to be more responsible, while offering them a third option.
Motorists caught committing major offences will have their vehicles fitted with electronic tags for up to a month. If drivers attempt to move the monitored vehicle, it will set off an alarm in the police command room and they risk tougher penalties.
This will be an option offered to motorists, instead of having vehicles impounded in the detention centre. However, if drivers move their tagged vehicle, not only will the vehicle be impounded but they will also face a fine. Read more

Dubai-Traffic 2015Road traffic accidents, injuries and fatalities peak in the holy month of Ramadan. It is sad to witness hundreds of accidents and dozens of fatalities every year. Ramadan is a very special time and its all about being with the ones close to you, which creates a lot of traffic! This festive time also brings very unique  challenges for all traffic participants.
The Ramadan specific lifestyle has physical effects on our body – especially this year, when Ramadan will start in June, coinciding once again with the hot summer weather. Fasting can result in dehydration and low blood sugar, which in turn can affect our attentiveness, concentration, vision and reaction. In addition to fasting, the often unusual and irregular meal timings and sleep patterns can cause fatigue, exhaustion, impatience and distraction.
Just before sunset is a problematic time to be on the roads, because motorists tend to rush towards their Iftar appointments. This pre-iftar rush hour is a mix of psychological urges and physical needs and motorists might use this as an excuse to misbehave on the roads. Hence, all traffic participants must be extra careful in this time slot!

Ask LouiseQuestionWe have recently moved to Dubai and want to know if it’s better to buy or rent a car here 

AnswerYou need first to find out if you and your family will actually enjoy living here and for how long.  For these reasons many expats  start off by looking at the short-term option rather than taking on the long-term financial commitment of purchasing a car.  It is worth noting that renting in the UAE is relatively cheap compared to renting in the UK or the States. However, the car market in Dubai is very seasonal with the summer months being an excellent time to grab a bargain as expats depart Dubai and Ramadan offers this year may mean buying is a better option for you. Here you can find out how to purchase a car and a list of car hire companies.
