UAE driving licence now accepted in 50 countries
Driving is great. The ability to just get in your car and go, is absolutely liberating. It makes travel, for the most part, a lot more afforable. This is especially true for those visiting foreign countries. And, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, you can now use your UAE driver's licence in 50 countries.
Previously the UAE driver's licence was only accepted in nine - Austria, Slovakia, Luxembourg, China, Portugal, Finland, Romania, Denmark and Serbia.
The new list now includes *takes a deep breath* Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Algeria, Jordan, Morocco, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Mauritania, Djibouti, Comoros, Tunisia, Iraq, Palestine, Spain, France, America, UK, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Netherlands, Slovakia, Ireland, Austria, Greece, Sweden, China, Poland, Canada, Turkey, Norway, Latvia, New Zealand, Serbia, South Africa, Finland, Hungary, Luxembourg, Lithuania and Singapore.
Although the list is quite impressive, motorists are still encouraged to apply for an international driving licence as some may require it.

“Send Me on My Way” — Rusted Root
“I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” — The Proclaimers
