International Driving Licence


How can I get an International Driving Licence?
The Ministry of Interior (MOI) has rolled out a new service that enables both citizens and residents in the UAE to apply for an International Driving Licence (IDL). To be able to apply for the licence, you would be required to have a valid local driving licence issued in the United Arab Emirates.
The IDL not only provides legal proof for traffic authorities in other countries that drivers possess a valid driver's licence in their country of residence, it is also necessary in case of any traffic accidents that you may be involved in, as it is a requirement for getting a legal insurance policy.
It may also be used as proof of identity, should your passport be lost or stolen while traveling abroad.

How to apply for an International Driving Licence?
You have two options:
1. Apply online for the licence to be delivered to your home or office

2. Apply at any of the Automobile and Touring Club locations in the UAE

How to apply for an IDL online?
Step 1: Visit https://www.atcuae.ae/idl-international-driving-license/

Step 2: Fill in your full name, email address and mobile number

Step 3: Fill in your date and place of birth, nationality, UAE and home country address.

Step 4: Enter your Emirates ID and UAE driverís licence details.

Step 5: Upload a digital copy of your Emirates ID and driverís licence.

Step 6: Make the payment.

From the time you complete your application process, the licence should be delivered to you in three to five working days.
