This section deals with everything to do with driving in Dubai; from how to organise a driving licence, buy a car or cope in a traffic accident, to understanding how to register and insure your vehicle. The section also covers procedures for new and experienced drivers. 

​Getting Started
When you first arrive in Dubai, and if you are still on a visit visa, you can rent a vehicle providing you have a valid driving licence from your home country. In this instance, your car insurance and other costs, excluding fuel, will be covered by the car hire company.
