9. Fee Structure for taking UAE Driving Licence

How much is the expense for taking driving licence in UAE?
What would be the total amount at the end?
Here are the rates for reference. The rates might change from time to time, anyways i am pertaining the charges for manual gear light vehicle driving licence application, as on Jan 1, 2015. I opted govt driving school, so the rates for private might change a little. All rates are given in AED.




Approximate Rates

Description Rates in AED
FILE Opening Application 120
Typing Charges in the typing centre if any (Approx.) 25
Typing Charges - Application for Govt SDI if opted for Govt  (Approx.) 30
Registration (75) and Traffic Book (25) 100
Theory 500
Practical Class Charges (50 Class)
*can be paid as two installment (1800 + 1200)
3000
Yard Test100
Pre-Test (Kacha)100
Final Test (Packa) 100
Licence Issuing Charge 550
Total Around 4600 AED (if passed all tests in first attempt)

Also for those who fail in a test has to pay the required test fee again. If you fail for the final test, then you have to pay around 185 Dhs for the next chance.

And it was surprising that i passed all the tests in my first attempt itself (isn't it great?),
so i dont know much about the details of failed attempts. So if anybody knows any more details can comment below.

In private driving schools, for practical classes, you need not pay full amount at once, rather need to pay 60 AED per class (the amount may vary for different driving schools).
