Statistics released by Licensing Agency of Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) revealed that about 2.4 million driver licenses had been issued by the end of 2019. 

In 2019, RTA issued 95,943 driver licenses. It also issued last year 17,995 driver licenses in replacement of driver licenses from nationals of countries exempted from driving tests, under agreements made with those countries. 

Studies proved that the higher educational level of applicants contributes to more benefit from training and gaining skills required to pass the driving test. It is also a factor contributing to balanced and safe driving. 

RTA adopts top global technological practices that minimise human error margin and expedites the testing frequency before obtaining the license; which brings in more accuracy, transparency and neutrality. RTA will broaden the scope of these global practices as they contribute to RTA’s strategic goals of Smart Dubai, People Happiness and Advance RTA.
