FAQs

  • Question 1: Can the customer apply for this transaction online if the vehicle ownership has been transferred to another person?

Answer 1: If the vehicle ownership was transferred to another person in Dubai, the system will view the vehicle as registered and the transaction cannot be done online or via the call center. Therefore, the customer needs to proceed to Deira Licensing and apply for this transaction.

If the vehicle ownership was transferred to another Emirate/exported/registered on a possession certificate, the transaction can be done online.
