Register a used car in Dubai

These procedures are related to registering a used car. If you have purchased a new vehicle, you do not have to worry about registration, as the dealer will handle all the formalities.

Criteria
For registration of used car, buyer (must be resident of Dubai) & seller must be present. In case, the seller is not present, a sale deed letter from an authorized showroom or dealer is required. If the vehicle is from another emirate, the vehicle registration should have been cancelled there. From August 2010, the re-registration can be done from other emirates as well. See media update
 
Dubai.ae tip: You can also check online at the Dubai Police website for any outstanding fines, which the seller should pay, before you register the car in your name.

1. Passport (original + copy) or Dubai driving license (original).
2. Insurance Policy (you may be able to transfer the old policy; if not, get a new one)
3. If the car is financed through a bank, take the proper documents, including ‘No Objection Letter’, if applicable.
4. Old registration card (if the registration is expired, the car should be tested at the Traffic Department or at Tasjeel Eppco or Emarat Shamil or Wasel Car Testing)
5. Original license plates

 

Procedure:

 

1. Go to Dubai Traffic Department or to Tasjeel Eppco or Emarat Shamil or Wasel Car Testing
