In case you are wondering how you can pay your RTA Dubai traffic fines online, we have created the step-by-step guide in order to help you. We have gone through this process ourselves as we also have some fines to pay. Please be advised that you will need to shut off your fines before you renew your car license registration. Also, the Dubai government is offering a 50% discount for all Dubai police traffic fines (not RTA fines) so it is best to take advantage of the discount while it is still available.

We hope that you find this step by step process helpful as you settle your traffic fines online. The RTA website is actually pretty straightforward, but just in case you need some more assistance, below is the process with some screenshots.
Step 1: Go to this website: https://traffic.rta.ae and search for your Fines by entering your car details (plate number, license number, etc). In our case, we chose option one as it was much easier for us. Type the verification code and click “Search”
Step 2: A page with your list of Fines associated with your vehicle will show up. You can select all to pay all your fines, or choose the ones you want to pay first (depending on your budget). Click “Continue”
Step 3: Enter your Traffic File Number and Birth year. There will be a pop-up window that will require you to verify that you are the owner of the car you’re about to pay.

Step 7: Congratulations your payment has been submitted. A new page will show up confirming the successful process of the payment. Please keep the request reference number as proof that you have successfully processed the payment. This will also be used in case you have any issues in the future.
