Now, residents can get renewed driving licences and vehicle registrations in Dubai in just two hours, through a more convenient and straightforward process that is easy to follow.

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced new services for delivering driving licences and vehicle registration cards in two hours within Dubai, and on the same day to Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

However, if you are on vacation and would like to renew your registration card or licence, you can even request delivery to your locations outside the UAE.


Residents who would like to renew their documents will have to visit the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) website and click on 'Driver & Car Owner Services'.

1. Under the section, you will be guided to many options and must select Apply for Renewing Driver’s Licence.

2. While applying for renewal, one must keep the Emirates ID and Driving Licence handy.

3. Fulfil the identity verification by entering the Emirates ID number and the expiry date of the ID, which will then take you to the verification of driving licence information.

4. Select the method of how would you like to have your licence delivered.


1. A new window will open with the price for services, which include Premium, Same Day, Standard and International.

2. Premium service caters to Dubai. The cost is Dh50 and the estimated delivery time is just 2 hours.

3. Same-day delivery service is for Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah, at a cost of Dh35 with the delivery on the same day.

4. Standard service is for UAE and takes about one to five days with the price Dh20.

5. International service takes about 10 days for delivery at a cost of Dh50.

One must note that Premium and Same Day delivery are available from Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 12pm. The service is not available post 12pm.

During the first quarter of this year, the RTA processed 107,054 vehicle-renewal transactions, 25,500 driving licence renewals; and 939 transactions for replacing damaged or lost driving licences. Additionally, the authority issued 732 international driving licences.
