• Original passport with valid visa + photo copy
• Filled application
• No Objection Letter from sponsor with company seal and signature. For dependent sponsored visa holders, NOC from husband/father/mother is enough.
• 4 photographs

• Applicant's age should not be less than 18 years
• Normal applicants should appear for 40 practical classes and 4 theoretical classes.

• GCC valid driving license holders can appear for road test directly along with the above mentioned documents.

• If the
applicant holds valid driving license from his home country, he needs to appear for 20 classes only, if the license is attested from the concerned Consulate.

Why drivers fail Dubai Road Test?

Fear of failure and nervousness are the main causes of drivers not passing the road test, a senior licensing official at the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said.

“Behaviour of the driver on road is crucial. The examiner will see whether the driver is safe for other road users or whether he is a threat to their safety,” he added.

However, apart from psychological and behavioural aspects there are major aspects of driving that a driver has to follow to obtain a licence.

There are five major criteria and if a candidate fails to fulfil even one of those, then he is stopped from driving immediately. One of these five is “failure to stop at red light, stop sign or stop line”.

“The most important thing to look for on the road is not how you drive but how you stop, that matters the most. If you fail to stop where you are required then you are gone,” Surprisingly, failure to stop at signals is among the most common mistakes.

“This is common among experienced drivers, those who already have a licence from other countries. What they do is they see the road open and they go, because they carry their habits from their prior experience and it is difficult to change old habits,” he explained.

The other major mistakes are not adhering to traffic signs like entering a no-entry zone or yellow box, lack of vehicle control and failure to ensure the road, lane or roundabout is clear before proceeding.

Apart from control and confidence of the driver, examiners generally look for adherence of rules and there are 16 things among these minor rules that need to be taken care of.

If a candidate takes care of at least 12 of the 16 minor criteria then he will succeed. These are pre-drive checks, mirrors and observation, signals, lane change, overtaking, approach, stop position, judgement, left turn, movement on roundabout and U-turn, right turn, progress and speed, position on road gear use, safety margin, parking in and out.

“Drivers learn these rules during theory classes and road training, but it is important to implement these rules or adhere to them. Young drivers, who are driving for the first time, learn better and adhere to rules better, that’s why they have a better pass rate,” he said.

To pass, the driver has to clear at least 12 of these 16 steps apart from five major points that need to be adhered to.

“If a person drives well throughout his test but commits one major mistake at the end of the test then he will fail,” he stated.
