Renewal changes to UAE driving license!

RTA has updated the law of driving license!

New driving licenses will be issued for only two years, and only 1 year for ages below 21.

Existing driving licenses will be renewed for 10 years for UAE citizens. 

While expats need to renew their driving license every 5 years.

New rules will be implemented by July 1st, 2017.

RTA is always keen to comply with the Federal and Ministerial Laws governing the issuance, renewal or age limits related to driver licenses out of its keenness to serve the public interest and realize its vision of providing Safe & Smooth Transport for All,” - Ahmed Bahrozyan; CEO of RTA Licensing Agency.
