Vehicle testing certificates in Dubai now paperless
Electronic certificates will be e-mailed to customers.
Motorists in Dubai will no longer receive paper certificates when they get their vehicles tested for registration. Instead, e-certificates will be issued and e-mailed to customers, the emirate's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced on Monday.
Besides making the process more convenient and cost-efficient, the step was taken in line with the Dubai Paperless Strategy, a key project initiated by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council. The strategy seeks to transform the Dubai Government into a fully digital one in a couple of years.
"The RTA is always keen to support the government's plans and strategic objectives of Dubai and the Green Economy initiative features high in the RTA's core goals," said Jamal Al Sadah, director of vehicle licensing at the Licensing Agency of the authority.
Avoiding the use of paper amid the pandemic also supports efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the official added.
"The RTA has always been committed to improving and developing its services, aiming to make people happier and boost their satisfaction with the RTA's services," Al Sadah said.
