The RTA has made it possible to renew a driver’s license in Dubai online in a variety of ways. Here are some of the networks on which you can count.


The official website of the RTA provides a robust and user-friendly tool for online Dubai license renewal. To apply for a new license or extend an existing one, simply follow these steps:

  • The candidate must go through a required eye exam at one of the eye test centers.
  • Navigate to the RTA’s official website and click on the Driver and Car Owner Services page.
  • To access different services related to Dubai driving license renewal, click on the Driving License Services page.
  • Please upload all required papers.
  • Pay any and any penalties or fines that could be imposed.
  • You will be given a temporary driver’s license for a period of 5 to 15 working days, that you will print and use before your original license arrives.

Get your driver’s license from one of the Happiness Centers in Al Barsha or Deira. You will also have your latest license shipped by paying an extra AED 25 in delivery fees. Some other ways to renew your driving license are through Dubai Driving App, RTA Call Centers and service centers.
