Smooth well maintained roads though there is traffic – Dubai has always been a driver’s paradise. You will definitely feel like owning a car in Dubai because of its world class roads and availability of good cars. All top manufacturers of the world are there to entice the customers and hook them up for a deal. A second hand car sale is also a robust business and many are opting for it.
Several factors needed to be considered if you are planning to sell a car or own a new one. The process takes place at a vehicle licensing center or traffic police headquarters.
These things can be done at Eppco Tasjeel Centre. It is called the Al Sayara service and for Dhs 200 a driver will pickup your vehicle and return it after having it tested and registered.
After submitting the original documents, next step is to pay the prescribed fees. An ownership transfer fee of Dhs. 320 with some additional fees should be disbursed. Once this is done the new owner will receive the new vehicle registration document which is of credit card size. Note that the fees mentioned will keep on changing.
Two or more years old vehicle must be tested (DH 50) at the vehicle testing centers. Don’t forget to carry your registration card.
