UAE Driver’s license issuance sped up through Ministry of Interior App
Aspiring drivers can now complete the process to obtain their Driver’s License using the UAE MoI app. Registrants who have passed their driving tests through the federal traffic and registration system can easily login using their file number and complete the process for obtaining the driver’s license through the newly launched service.
The service will be automatically available once the beneficiary enters the ‘traffic section’ and presses on the ‘driving license’ button. The file should be registered in the federal traffic and registration system that is available across the UAE.
Brigadier Ghaith Hassan Al Zaabi, Director General, Traffic Coordination Directorate General, Ministry of Interior, said that through the provision of driving license issuance service via UAE MoI app, citizens and residents will save both time and effort. In light of recent digitization of most government services, this is a welcome service for people looking to conduct transactions online in an easy manner via their smartphones.
The public is encouraged to contact the MoI customer service center via 8005000 or [email protected] where a technical team is working round-the-clock to answer inquiries.
Upon downloading the app, we also noticed that it had restrictions in place to avoid rooted phones from using the app. In light of recent security breaches, it is enlightening to see the government taking security seriously and taking steps to ensure the safety and integrity of their systems.
In addition to the new services, the app also provides other services for the following departments:
- Traffic and Licensing:
- Vehicles Registration
- Traffic Fines
- Plates Services
- Drivers Test Services
- Civil Defense
- Institutions Licensing
- Engineering Plans
- Police Headquarters
- Police Services
- Naturalization and Residency
- Entry Permits Services
- Entry Visa Services
