An announcement to this effect was made following the signing of a
joint agreement by Ahmed Bahrozyan, CEO of the RTA's Licensing Agency;
and Amer Belhasa, Executive Director of the Dubai International Driving
Center, providing for the practicing of activities of training,
qualifying and licensing drivers in Dubai.
"This cooperation comes first in the best interest of customers,
especially residents of the Investment Park "2", Jebel Ali; a fast
growing areas featuring high construction & urbanization rates, and
attracting large numbers of residents who are in need of a center
specialized in driving and issuing driver licenses. Such a requirement
is tangible as the place is far away from the city center rendering it
difficult for residents to join any of the other five driving centers in
Dubai: Al Ahli Center, Galadari Center, Emirates Institute, Belhasa
Center, and Dubai Center," said Bahrozyan.
"The new driving school will provide a diverse cast of driving
services for trainees, including driver licenses for all types of
vehicles & buses, be it light or heavy, motorcycles, and mechanical
equipment. It will also run training courses for novice drivers or
holders of foreign driver licenses, and provide other services that
include drivers testing, eyesight testing, and knowledge testing through
the approved languages," he added.
"The RTA is keen on granting a permit to open the Drive Dubai Center,
Jebel Ali, as we are fully aware of the importance of establishing such
a center in this area and confident of its success in attracting large
numbers of the public. The facility will save much of their time &
effort, and enable them achieve their prime objective of availing
training and obtaining driver licenses, besides minimizing the pressure
on other driving schools in Dubai," said Bahrozyan, adding that "the
Center will abide by the standardized training contract approved by the
RTA in contracting with trainees, as well as the fees structure agreed
upon with the Licensing Agency as regards the training and services
rendered to trainees."
