Motorists Age 65 and Above Need to Pass Medical Test for License Renewal
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai has planned to introduce medical test procedures for renewal of driving licenses for motorists aged 65 and above.
To renew the license in Dubai, the motorists will have to undergo medical screening at private, and public hospitals and RTA approved clinics from September 1 this year.
The introduction of an initiative like this is another step towards the traffic safety for road users. With the intention to restrict motorists to drive who are suffering from any disease, this rule will be mandatory to get your renewed license.
For this category people, the validity will be three years only not the usual 10 years. An online portal has been set up which will give the access to the RTA approved hospitals and clinics to judge the medical condition of applicants according to the pre-set criteria.
The services for license renewal will be available through RTA’s website (www.rta.ae), apps for Android and iOS and Call Centre (8009090)
