Owning a car in Dubai

Buying a car in Dubai is comparatively easier with lesser paperwork with easy bank loans and competitive insurance. Added to this, fuel prices are comparatively lower than other countries, making it affordable to most individuals interested in using their own personal cars for commuting. It must be noted that most petrol stations in Dubai do not accept credit cards, so you need to keep cash in hand.

The RTA in association with the Federal Traffic & Licensing System, Dubai Police and the Ministry of Interior has permitted renewal of car registration of vehicles issued from other emirates, as well as non-Dubai driving licenses. Apart from renewal of licences and registration of vehicles, the new RTA system will also facilitate no-objection certificates (NOCs). These facilities are being tried at RTA's main customer centre at Umm Al Ramool, Deira Licensing Centre and Al Barsha Licensing Centre and in the next phase will be made available at other RTA centres.

If you don’t have the time to do your car registration, the RTA has a special service called ‘Personal Appearance Service’. You do a one-time visit to any RTA customer service centre, register your personal details and receive a personal identification number (PIN) on your mobile. You can then send a representative with this PIN to do your RTA licensing work, whether it is for one car or multiple cars under your name. Other transactions that can be done with a PIN include export, transfer and number plate sale, though it must be noted that after your representative’s visit, the PIN expires and for further visits, you will need to do another ‘Personal Appearance Service’ to get another PIN.
