Driving Licence

Tourists can drive hire cars on their domestic licence or International Driving Permit. If you have a residence visa then you must have a UAE driving licence – it is illegal to drive without one. Some nationals qualify for an automatic licence transfer, so long as their original licence has not expired. Always keep your driving licence in the vehicle, along with the vehicle registration card – you could be fined if stopped by the police otherwise.
