List of Driving Schools in the UAE

Although the UAE has an extensive public transport system, many people still prefer to drive on their way to work, or when sightseeing across the country. If you are one of them, then applying for a driving license, as well as registering your vehicle, is an absolute must!

Notably, some nationalities can easily convert their existing driving license into a UAE driving license. On the other hand, if you do not come from these “exempted countries,” you will need to take a driving examination. And for this, you need to take up classes in a driving school.
