I have had a Canadian license but already expired, and a valid Hong Kong license. What will be the simplest method to obtain the Dubai's one ?

If you have a Malaysian licence you have to have lessons (min 21) and sit a test to obtain a Dubai licence.

I asked at the RTA what it would take for a few of my guys from Mexico to obtain a drivers license here in Dubai and they could only direct me to the driving schools. How many classes will they have to take? They each have a drivers license from the United States, but passports from Mexico.

You need to get registerd with one among the five RTA approved driving institutes. You will apply for 20 classes followed by an assessment test, signal test and a road test. Incase you fail the road test, you'll have to attend 7 extra classes for a retest. For the rates you can call me on 0504960059.
