How to apply for a driving license in Dubai

- no objection certificate from your employer;
- eight photographs;

The application form for your license must be typed in Arabic and submitted to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), after which you will receive a temporary driving license that you must carry with you during the whole time you are undergoing training. The training for your Dubai driving license consists of a few tests: parking and garage tests, theory tests (35 questions on road signals, guidelines, and hazards) and the final one - the road test during which you will have a few minutes to demonstrate your aptitudes. After you pass all the tests, you can obtain your driving license within a few minutes. If you are a UAE resident and you already have a license issued in your mother country, you can convert it into a Dubai driving license.
