Along with a variety of other services, RTA offers the service to renew your vehicle registration and ownership of a vehicle registered in Dubai. Here, we will present you with all of the information you need to know about the Process, Cost, Time Required, and Documentation Needed to Complete Each Renewal Procedure.

RTA Car Registration Renewal

This facility allows you to renew the ownership of your Dubai-registered car. This service is available to both individual clients and businesses.

If your car registration renewal deadline is approaching, there is no need to be concerned because car registration renewal in Dubai has become relatively simple. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) provides all car owners with a variety of options.

Every year when your car registration expires, you have a grace period of 30 days to renew it. As a result, the Dubai car registration is fully valid for 13 months, including one penalty-free month. This is why car insurance in Dubai is valid for thirteen months. Car owners who do not renew their registration during the grace period must forfeit an AED 500 fee.

In addition, some drivers may have lost their driver’s licence, or their vehicles may be impounded for 7 days if their registration lapsed more than 3 months ago.

Procedure

So, if you don’t want to go through all of this, be sure you renew your car registration on time by following these simple procedures.

Pay your overdue fines

First and foremost, you must confirm that your car has no overdue fines. If there are any pending traffic penalties, you must first pay them. You may accomplish this by visiting the RTA’s official website or using the RTA Dubai app on your phone.

However, if you have any black points on your licence, you must go to the police station to get them removed before you may register your car.

Get your car tested

For the first two years, new automobiles are exempt from the test. As a result, any new automobile may take advantage of the twenty-four-month test-free period.

Following that, you must attend one of the RTA or ADNOC car testing sites to have your vehicle assessed and obtain the ‘passed certificate.’

The primary purpose of this test is to ensure that your vehicle is roadworthy.

Please keep in mind that if your vehicle fails a test, you must fix any damages before having it tested again. As a result, you will have to pay the test expenses once more.

This test costs 170 AED and takes between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on the number of consumers. Its validity is thirty days.
