Expat Driving License will be valid after Visa cancellation

According a recent ruling by Dubai Court of Cassation, former UAE residents can still use a valid driver’s licence while visiting Dubai even after having cancelled their residence visas.

Dubai Court of Cassation issued a recent ruling which stipulates that a person can continue using his or her UAE-issued driving licence as long as it remains valid and even after having cancelled the residence visa.



“When the authorities terminate a resident’s visa that does not mean that his/her driving licence is unusable as well. A driver’s licence remains valid in Dubai as long as it hasn’t expired. The document is considered applicable provided it was issued upon a valid residence visa,” said the landmark ruling which was issued upon a traffic case that surfaced at Dubai courts recently.
