You can now renew your UAE driving license in Ras Al Khaimah online. Actually, you must.
All drivers registered in Ras Al Khaimah must renew their driving licenses electronically via smart app. Elderly and people of determination are exempted from the new rule.
"By the end of this June, all drivers registered in the traffic system in the emirate will be able to renew their licenses through the smart apps of the Ministry of Interior. The decision will help save money, time and effort, and give a boost to the smart conversion of the RAK police services." said Brigadier Adel Ali Al Ghais, Director of RAK Police Licensure Department at RAK Police.
However, to renew your UAE driving license in Ras Al Khaimah, you need to upload a successfully passed eye test. Currently, there are six eye test centers in Ras Al Khaimah, including RAK Hospital, Specialist Medical Centre, Al Jaber Optical Centre, Sameer Optical, Belhasa Drivers Training Centre and the eye test center at RAK Police Licensure Department.
After a successful application and payment of the fees (approx. 110 AED), the new UAE driving license shall be delivered to your address via courier. This new service shall be much cheaper and faster than the previous process including typing.
RAK Police distributed several brochures to raise public awareness about the new UAE driving license renewal procedures. The electronic driving license renewal via smart app will benefit RAK residents, who will save money, time and effort.
