Abu Dhabi Driving Lessons and how to get your UAE Driver's License

Abu Dhabi driving lessons are a mandatory requirement in the process for obtaining a UAE driver's license.

If you've never had a full driving license, or if your passport is different to the country in which you gained your full license, then you will need to sit a local UAE test to obtain a local license.
