Dubai Driving license questions

Not every one as lucky as my friend Azar who got his dubai driving license in his first attempt. I got mail from Oliver who is my regular blog reader by saying that he is going to attend his 5th Dubai driving license test and need tips. Oliver is a nice guy and he got marvelous 10 years of experience in driving in his hometown but still he took 5 times !!. I don't know whether he passed or not in his 5th attempt. And recently anaveed wrote to me and said he is going to attend his 10th attempt. I couldn't believe guys. List doesn't end here. So many friends started writing to me on my mail id [email protected] I am providing my best answer as my experience.

Lane Change

Question: For my lane change manuering ,when i do shoulder check my car swerve (moves ),what is going wrong i cant understand please help me am I holding the steering wrong while moving my head,please help.

This is one of the problem for every one during the learning mainly because we hold the steering very tightly. So avoid that first. You should hold steering very lightly.
The swerving happening mainly because you are trying to change the lane during the shoulder check which is a dangerous act.
Take care below things

  • Keep the steering straight while doing the mirror and shoulder check. And after shoulder check you have to check again the center mirror. Once all this clear only you turn the steering to the lane you wish to move too. 
  • You have to turn smoothly to the new lane once checked properly
Practice more with your instructor.


Question:While turning the car to right for changing road,intersection, how to start and how to turn correctly

  • Switch on your right signal
  • Stop in the stop signal - Just before the solid line. you have to stop completely if that is stop signal even if there is no traffic from left side. If it broken line it means give way, and you can see give way signal too. Here you don't need to stop completely. Here you continue if no traffic from you left
  • Scan the traffic from your left side. If there is no traffic you can proceed
  • If there is traffic wait for the traffic to clear. Once clear you can proceed
