    • In Dubai the international driving license allows you to drive in the country for a limited time only and you can NOT convert to UAE license. In case you have a Filipino driving license you MUST undergo local driving school training and take 20 classes but in case you don’t have a driving license from your home country it means you need to do 40 classes.

      • What is the logic behind this? The citizens of specific countries can convert their licenses in to UAE license, but the previous residents who have the same respective licenses can not convert it. Be it a resident or citizen, the traffic rules and tests are same in every country. So how the license obtained in same manner can be classified and denied of conversion? Sounds funny?? ehh…whats the logic…

      That is NOT true, you never pay 10,000 for the license unless if you keep failing. From one time getting the license will cost from 4,000 to 6,000 depending on the school. I got mine from Emirates Driving Institute and paid 5,600 Dirhams. With your Pakistani license, you will get 20 class instead of 40 class which will give you even more discount.

      No, not possible if you’re not Omani citizen, but you will get fewer lessons to attend when you apply for new HTV license in Dubai (Possible 20 class instead of 40, not sure about HTV).

      Hi Karthik, as mentioned above and as RTA told us, you must be Qatari national to convert your Qatari license. Meaning RTA only converts the license if you’re a citizen of that eligible country.

      You can’t convert your Saudi license if you are not Saudi national, unfortunately. you have to take a new license from UAE.
