Acquiring a UAE driving license is not a difficult thing. If you have a current resident status in the UAE and you happen to be a citizen of these countries below, you would be eligible for transfer of existing driving license without taking a driving course. These countries are:
If you are a citizen of those countries listed above, you don’t need to attend a driving course in Dubai for you to have your license changed. On the other hand, if you’re a citizen of other countries of the world other than those mentioned above you must undergo a driving course and a test before changing your home country driver’s license in Dubai.
The procedure here would involve providing all the relevant documents required above, plus undergoing the real driving test before having your existing driver’s license changed. This usually occurs to expats residents whose countries are not allowed to simply exchange their driving license because they are not included in the list of countries who are allowed to change their driver’s license in Dubai without undergoing through a driving test.
You would undergo series of lessons about driving and traffic situations in Dubai, multiple choice exam, get assessed, and if you pass you would be issued a UAE driving license. On the other hand, if you fail the exam you would be required to retake the exam you failed in. It is important to know that this procedure also goes to Dubai nationals who have never obtained a driver’s license before.
