RTA introduces medical testing of driver license applicants aged 65 or above

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is introducing medical testing procedures for motorists aged 65 and above who wish to renew their driver licenses. They will now be required to undergo medical screening at public and private hospitals and clinics approved by the RTA in Dubai as of September 1st this year.

“The introduction of this initiative stems from the keenness of the RTA to achieve the highest traffic safety levels for road users at top-class international standards. The implementation of this procedure will start as of 1st September this year for motorists aged 65 and above. The test is intended to verify if motorists are free from diseases that may impact their driving abilities to the extent of posing risks to road users. The validity of the renewed driver license will be 3 years only instead of 10 years. There will be an online link with the approved hospitals and clinics enabling them access to the online licensing system of the RTA to judge the medical condition of applicants for driver license renewal,” said Jamal Assada, Director of Drivers Licensing at RTA’s Licensing Agency.

“Introducing the medical fitness as a precondition for the renewal of driver licenses reflects RTA’s commitment to the life of motorists & road users comprising pedestrians and vehicles. The renewal of driver licenses service will be available through RTA’s Call Centre (8009090), Website (www.rta.ae) and app on smart phones/devices (RTA Dubai).
