Don’t Pay Your Fines Until 2020 And Get Insured Faster
Motorists who are re-registering their vehicle registration in Dubai can now do so without paying traffic fines as per the traffic discount initiative launched by Dubai Police earlier this year.
If you are looking to re-register your vehicle in Dubai, you can now do so without paying your traffic fines. Earlier this year, on February 6, 2019, motorists who don’t commit traffic offenses for three months (from the 6/2/2019) get a 25% discount on select traffic fines.
Having a clean slate for six months gives motorists 50% off, nine months means 75% discount and those who go a full 12 months without incurring a fine get 100% off!
“We have coordinated with the Roads and Transport Authority to allow individuals to renew their vehicle’s registration automatically regardless of the accumulated fines in any periods of confiscation imposed on vehicles or offenses committed. We want the public to benefit from the discount initiative,” explained Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, Chief of Dubai Police.
“Individuals can go to registration centers and decide whether or not to pay traffic fines immediately. Individuals can choose the number of fines they want to clear. However, if they don’t commit a traffic offense, they don’t have to pay anything till February 2020,” added Al Merri.
This initiative does not apply to accumulated parking fines or the Salik.
Brig Saif Al Muhair AL Mazroui, director of the traffic department, added: “the initiative only applies to individuals who own vehicles and does not apply to vehicles of private companies, rental offices, and public or private transport companies.”
It is now easier than ever to re-register your car and get insured. You only have to make sure your vehicle passes the car test!
