In Dubai now for 8 months and time to get the DL for my wife.

One question, since we're still waiting for our UAE ID, can she get it without that?

Thanks,
Rick

Yes

Letter of no objection from you, her current licence and her passport.

Get the eye test done before going into the RTA office too.

Hi guys - what is a UAE ID? I thought as long as I have my residency visa sorted, then I can pretty much get a bank a/c opened, transfer my UK driving license to UAE one, and get a car loan. So why do I need a UAE ID?? and is there a cost to it??

Thanks

When I took my eye test here a few years ago to get my licence it involved sitting on a chair, covering one eye with my hand and reading a couple of letters off a board which was approx four metres away from me!

My eyes are fine by the way!

Eat your carrots, do you ever see rabbits wearing glasses....

couldn't make out the letters with one eye, which surprised me. Other fine. Took about 45 seconds. Both eyes marked up as 100%. QUality thoroughness!!
