Motorists in the UAE can now renew their driving licences online, the Ministry of Interior tweeted.
As of Sunday, March 29, all driving licences that are to expire in the next three months are eligible for renewal using smart applications.

All driving licences will be renewed online notwithstanding fines, black points or pending eye tests.
The renewal will be valid for one year from the date of issuance.
A similar injunction was issued earlier this week, when motorists in the UAE were allowed to renew their vehicles’ registration cards without having to visit any service delivery centre.
The vehicle registration renewal directive comes into effect from Sunday, March 22, until the next three months.
