:. UAE Driving licence

Sent by: Ilias Arvanitis


Do I need to do any test to receive UAE driving licence? What are the procedures in this regard.




Citizens of Greece are eligible to transfer their existing Greek driving license to UAE licence, without having to take a driving test or going to a driving school

The individual has to be a citizen of Greece with current resident status in UAE.

If you do not have a current resident status in UAE you will not be able to transfer your licence to a UAE licence. However you will have the right to drive a rent a car like any tourist.

Non-Greek citizens who have Greek driving licence and valid UAE resident status are not eligible for the licence transfer. 

Call RTA on 8009090 for additional information.

Greek driving license holders require translation of their driving license from the Consulate.

Fees & Documents Required:
Residence permit copy
Current driving license (original & copy)
Translation of driving license
1 passport photo
Eye test certificate
AED 100 for transfer fee.
No-objection letter from your sponsor.

Get an eye test done: This can be done at any hospital, clinic or optician. Give them 2 passport-sized photos and mention that it is for a driving license.

Carry all documents mentioned above and go to Dubai Traffic Department Driving License Section in Al Ghusais from 7.30 am to 2.30 pm on a working day.

You will be able to get the licence on the same day of the application.
