UAE residents will soon be able to renew their driver’s licence at Dubai International Airport.
Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said it will open a dedicated centre at Terminal 1 on the Departure Concourse in the third quarter of 2022.
The service will be provided between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm, and for 24|7 from the beginning of 2023.
The centre, which will work in partnership with the private sector and trusted agents, will be for travellers and airport staff.
Ahmed Mahboub, RTA’s Executive Director of Drivers Licensing, says eyesight testing is a key requirement of renewing the driving licence. “The client is required to visit one of the approved optical centres in Dubai to undergo eyesight testing,” he added.
“Upon clearing the test, the licence will be issued or renewed through the available channels. The licence will be printed or delivered to the client, depending on the type of channel and the preference selected.”
