hi guys,

How does it work with regard to drivers licenses there? My wife and I have South African drivers licenses. Do we need to convert these? We're hoping to lease a car once we get there.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Driving License

You will need to convert it to UAE driving license as soon as you get your Visa ready, for you as your current one is from South Africa so it will be just replacement with out any exam, check this link http://www.adpolice.gov.ae/en/?T=1&ID=613
For main time when you arrive and you do not have visa yet, you can get an International driving license that will let you drive here check this link
International driving license vs local driving license

hope this will help you.
Good luck

I asked some friends and they told me that you have to go through the exam again, it will just be easier as you do not need to open new file and make eye exam, but still you need to take the driving exam.

Good Luck
