Tips to Pass road test in Dubai

Tips to road test

Tips to pass driving test in United Arab Emirates are significant because passing the final road test in Dubai or any other emirate of UAE is not an easy task to be performed. Having Driving license in UAE is very important in many aspects but taking driving license here is not easy at all. You have to go through lot of money expenditure, lot of mental stress and huge amount of time to get one. I have received many emails regarding the tips that work for passing driving test. Lucky people get their license on their first attempt while the un lucky people are not getting it even more than dozen attempts. I also met with a guy from India, who took his driving license on seventeenth attempt. I was surprisingly shocked and could imagine his pain from which he passed through out his driving license journey and at the same time I was experiencing his happiness when finally got it.

Some people say that RTA examiners are failing people purposely to increase their revenue but I am totally against this theory. This is absolutely wrong and unrealistic. RTA examiners are well trained and professional and they have hawk eye’s observation and response towards your mistakes on the road. Some people say that it depends on their mood as well , if they are happy on the day, they will pass you and if their mood is not good, no matter how good you drove , they will fail you. This is another unrealistic rumor and I am again turning it down. As I said they are professional in their duties so their mood cannot affect their results. The reality is, when they realize that you can drive, they pass you.  Beside from checking your road drive, they observe your confidence level, you body language and your approaches towards different perceptions. All these make them able to decide about your driving license success or failure.

Below you will find some Basic tips, which will help you out on your final road test.

  • Be in proper dress on your final road test. Always give a good and professional impression to the examiner.
  • Don’t ask questions from the examiner, when you are on your final test, just follow his directions and concentrate on your driving.
  • Adjust your seat, mirrors and fasten your seat belt, before moving the car.
  • Don’t forget to direct others people sitting in the rear seat, to fasten their seat belt.
  • Don’t forget Blind spot check while entering the road or at any other point when it is necessary.
  • Keep checking the center mirror, side mirrors regularly.
  • While changing lane always check, center mirror then side mirror and a blind spot check and indicator.
  • Always follow the two seconds rule for maintaining safe distance.
  • Learn all the rules of roundabout and u turns.

There were the few basic rules, which are important and everyone must know while going on their final road test. Beside from all these if your confidence level is low you will not the final test. Due to lack on confidence you will make mistakes resulting in the failure of your test. If you want detailed and the most accurate tips with almost hundred percent success rate then there is a small guide available which will help you in passing your test on your first attempt or if you have already failed it then you can easily pass by following the instructions in that guide. It will also give you the required confidence, and you will perform like a pro in your driving license final road test. If you are interested then you may visit or download that guide from Here

How to Get Discount in Driving Classes in Dubai and Abu Dhabi  

Discount in driving license classes fees is always welcomed by the customers. As in Dubai , Abu Dhabi or in the whole of United Arab Emirates the driving license fee is high and process is very tough. Normally if you want to take license , you have to take forty learning classes but if you are already having your home country’s license and it is older then three years, then you have to take only twenty classes before you appear in the road test.

If someone is eligible for twenty classes and passes his final road test on first attempt, the total cost on his driving license will be in between Three thoursand three hundreds  to  Three Thousand Five Hundreds AED, The cost varies due to different structures on fee of different driving schools.  A person with total forty classes and with first attempt success , the cost will come between forty five to forty seven hundreds AED.

In many driving schools such discounts are available, varying from forty five percent to fifty five percent. You can find discount coupon and different offers time to time on driving license classes , which can reduce your driving license cost upto Seven to Twelve hundreds  AED.

You can search online for the terms “Belhasa Driving classes discount” or “Galadari Driving Classes discount” and so on for Emirates driving school discounts, You will always get some deals and good results, you can also find coupon but most of the time the coupons are for limited time and their time validity had been expired.

But if there is ways of discounts and in other words you can say that  it is possible to cut off your license fees then why to pay more amount? So be saving guy and always try to take discounts.
