Driving in Dubai and traffic laws

The rapid development of Dubai’s roads and transport network can only work with a system of rules and regulations. Dubai Police and the Roads and Transport Authority play major roles in ensuring safety and traffic regulations and use smart technology to ensure traffic violations are kept to a minimum. A system of black points leading to confiscation of your driving license is in force to ensure adherence to traffic laws. In case you have broken the traffic or parking laws, you can conveniently pay your fines online, but this facility is normally for minor infringements.

The RTA also advises all motorists to avoid using the road shoulder, except in an emergency. The road shoulder should not be used for taking a rest or using the mobile phone, since it may block an ambulance or police car. The RTA defines an emergency for motorists as exceptional circumstances such as a vehicle breakdown or medical emergency. Motorists can be fined AED 600 and given six black points on their license for overtaking on the road shoulder, while parking on the road shoulder without just cause can lead additional fines.

In case your car has had a major accident, you will need to get your vehicle retested for roadworthiness, as per RTA regulations. Your garage will repair the vehicle and advise you on whether your vehicle needs to be retested for roadworthiness. Retests can be done very conveniently at any RTA authorized testing centre such as Shamil, Tasjeel and Wasel centre.
