Last Month, the residents of Dubai were notified about the Golden Chance procedure for converting their driving license without the need for attending extra classes. This was a nice opportunity for light motor vehicle riders who are from other nations, where their licenses cannot be switched for a UAE document.
To access the Golden Chance test the applicants have to pay a fee of Dh 2,200, which will cover both the written test and the one-time road test too. However, in the occasion of applicants failing to pass the test are required to attend classes before reapplying. To apply for this special test one must have an Original Emirates ID, A Visa from Dubai, an Eye test report, and a valid driving license issued from a non-exempt country.
