ABU DHABI DRIVING : Driving in Abu Dhabi (UAE) Guide


Essentials

In the UAE, vehicles are driven on the right side – the same as in the United States and Canada for example.

You must have a Residence Visa before you can apply for a driver’s license. Therefore you will not be able to drive for up to one month. Only those entering the UAE on a Visit Visa can rent a car or those holding a driver’s license issued by a GCC country. If your spouse has entered the UAE on a Visit Visa, he or she can rent a car using an international driver’s license or a temporary UAE driver’s license.

You can purchase a vehicle only after you have a Residence Visa and a UAE driver’s license. Vehicle prices start from approximately Dhs 45,000 and are available in both manual and automatic transmission. Second hand cars are available. There are a number of used car dealers, and advertisements on noticeboards in grocery stores or in the local newspapers and magainzes.

Vehicles can be imported for personal use. Duty in the amount of 4% is payable on the value assessed by Customs. To collect a car shipped to the UAE, Customs requires shipping documents and a photocopy of your passport (if you are the importer). Importing certain brands of new cars may require permission from the UAE agent. Also keep in mind the availability of an authorized dealer in the UAE to service the car, the availability of spare parts, and resale value.

Before you can drive your car, it will need to be insured and registered. The dealer will help you with both. You can shop around for an insurance policy or take one through the dealer. If you are buying privately, you will have to arrange the insurance and registration yourself. Human Resources will provide you with the letters required and advise you of the current procedures.

Once your car is registered, keep the registration card and your driver’s license in the car at all times. Also keep a photocopy of your passport. In case of an accident, you will be asked to produce these documents. You must register your car on a yearly basis. You must pay your traffic fines before you will be allowed to register your car or renew your driver’s license. Below are some general driving tips and techniques:


Accidents

If you have an accident, do not leave the scene of the accident. Contact the police. When the police arrive, have your registration card and driver’s license ready for them and follow their instructions. They will ask for your view of what happened, and then decide who was at fault. If the police decide you were at fault, you will be given a pink form. If you are determined not to be at fault, you will be given a green form. The form allows you to have your vehicle repaired. A garage cannot repair accident damage without a form.

Lanes

The paved shoulder is sometimes used as a fourth lane by impatient drivers. It is illegal.

Mobile Phones

It is against the law to drive while speaking on a mobile phone. Be sure to purchase a “hands freeâ€

So, your advices are welcome!

Driving in Abu Dhabi Driving license

Postby Cloggy » Sun Jan 10, 2010 6:17 pm

Hello all,

I am moving to Abu Dhabi next Month and start a new Job in March.
I am a UK resident but have a Dutch Passport.
In order to get a bank account and a mortgage here in the UK I had to change my driving licence to a UK one.
Now I am being told that driving license and Passport have to be from the same country in order to get a UAE driving license....
How do I go about this as the RDW in the Netherlands have told me that I cannot get a Dutch driving license unless I register in the Netherlands...

An international driving license would not be acceptable in Abu Dhabi?

Please help...


Best regards,

Cloggy

By the time I was there, they actually require that you driving Lic is issued from the same country you are from. But what you are looking for is transfering your Uk DL to a UAE one. If it is not possible, you can just go through the normal procedure, take courses, sit for the theoretical test and then pass the driving exam. Try to talk to the instructors while you are passing your exam and tell them that you had to go through all this long procedure eventhough you have a UK DL and that anyways you respect the law of this country. Authorities there are really nice and cool.
A small trick, instead of paying the offitial school for the driving courses (which is pretty expensive), I would advice you to try with these indian and pakistaneese instructors.
wish you good luck!

I forgot to tell you that you can drive with your international DL until you have your residence visa. When you got it, you are not allowed anymore to use it and you need to have a UAE DL.
Tests are very easy, I got them both from the first time eventhough I took only a one hour course before going to the exam.
