The Dubai Government announced that foreigners with Golden Visa can avail their test for new driving license without taking extra classes.

While it is a norm that residents must take lessons before taking the driving test, Golden Visa holders have been exempted from taking extra lessons to apply for a driving test.

Foreigners who held licenses from either one of the 32 approved countries were exempted from taking driving lessons. As per the recent announcement, only Golden Visa holders from non-exempt countries like India, Philippines and Pakistan have to take the test.

Another condition that applies for a Golden Visa holder if he/she fails to have required knowledge for getting the license would have to take a minimum of four hours of classes before applying for the test again.
