Driving in UAE

Driving around the UAE is definitely a worthwhile experience. However, there are some things you will need to know before hitting the road. 
Licenses 

• In order to apply for a driver’s license, you must have a Residence Visa. 
• Only those entering the UAE on a Visit Visa or those holding a driver’s license issued by a GCC country can rent a vehicle.


On The Road 

• In the UAE, vehicles are driven on the right side of the road. 
• It is illegal to drive over the paved shoulder. 
• It is also illegal to speak on a mobile phone while driving; get a “hands free” accessory for your phone. 
• It is against the law to turn right on a red light. 
• There are many roundabouts in the UAE. Try to stay on the inside lane when turning left and always signal. 
• Seatbelts (including rear seatbelts) in cars and buses are mandatory and should be worn at all times. 10 years old are not allowed in the front seat. 
• Watch out for speed bumps. They are usually indicated in yellow and can be quite high.
• You will be rarely stopped by a policeman for speeding, but note that there are many hidden radar cameras. 
*For fines incurred in Dubai, visit www.dxbtraffic.gov.ae. 
* For fines incurred in Abu Dhabi, visit www.adpolice.gov.ae.

Accidents 

• If you are involved in an accident, call the police and do not leave the scene. 
• Make sure that you have your registration card and driver’s license on hand. 
• When the police arrive, they will determine who is at fault so make sure to cooperate and answer their questions. 
• In the case where you are determined to be at fault, you will be given a pink form. If you are determined not to be at fault, you will be given a green form. 
• A garage cannot repair accident damage without this form so make sure to keep it safe.
