Actually this is not just a building but a building that tells the future of Dubai.

Thousands of people from our country go for their dream jobs every year in many Central Asia countries.

In last post one of you listener asked me via email what should I do for a driver job in Dubai?

Friends, in today’s post we are going to know that where and how to apply for driving license in Dubai?

What is Dubai Driving License? And how to get it?

Guys getting a driving license is a complex process in itself especially in Dubai.

I don’t want to drop your morale or discourage you by saying so I just want to explain the complexity of the process to you.

We apply offline or online for driving license in our country.

After application we are given a date and we have to go pass the driving license test that day and we are licensed.

Nobody comes to see if I know how to drive or not? But in Dubai case this situation is totally opposite.

Here you have to enroll in Dubai govt. set driving school at the same time you are trained as well.

First you have to get your eyes tested. Don’t worry about how and where to get this test done?

For this apparently your driving school will get you tested. You just have to enroll their here.

Once your eye test is done you will have to go to Dubai government official website of road and transport ministry and apply for driving license.

This work is also done by your driving school. You can also apply.

A test is taken after the application of a driving license. This training determines your experience.

Also if you’ve already driven a car, bike you’ll take less time than others.

If you want to obtain Dubai’s driving license then you have to enroll in Dubai only official driving school and after training there you will get driving license.

This is the matter of training. In this training school, you are tested after training. This is both theory and practical.

This test is a way to identify your mental and physical competencies. Once you pass this test you have to go to the official website of Dubai Driving License and apply.

You are given a date only after this application.

This is not Sunny Deol Paji’s date on date scene but on this date you have a return test in which you are asked mainly about traffic rules their symbols etc.

When you pass this test you have to go for practicals.

This is apparently given you a car or a bike that you have to drive successfully and without fear.

Once you pass both of these tests you get a Dubai Driving License. Hope you understand the whole process.

Overall the straight thing is that if you want to get a Dubai driving license you must enroll in Dubai’s official driving school and after training you will get a driving license.

Most important thing if you have India driving license it will not work there. You have to apply according to the rules there.
