These Changes To The Driving Licence Process In Dubai Will Make Everyone’s Life A Lot Easier
Stuff you should know before you think of getting on the roads
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) wants the driving training course to have a better structure therefore it has made some changes you should be aware of.
Right now, driving classes in Dubai are 30-minutes long with a minimum requirement of 40 classes, but this is going to change from 1 January 2017 and we definitely think it is for the better!
Those who want to apply for a driving licence need to take classes that are an hour-long
It makes the trip to your class worthwhile, and the number of classes drop as well.
This is how it will work:
If you do not have a driving licence from any country then you need to register for 20 classes, each one-hour long.
If you have a driving licence from your country that it is two to five years old then you need to take 15 classes, each one-hour long.
And if your driving licence is more than five years old then you take only ten classes, each one-hour long.
RTA also announced that a student can't train for more than four hours per day
For every two hours of practical training, a student must get a break of one hour before they can continue their training for another two hours.
Schools offering classes include:
