Apply Driving License in Abu-Dhabi Golden Chance

Driving License in Abu-Dhabi by golden chance

Hello, all my name Elan and I am from India Tamil Nadu, I am going to share my experience that how I took a manual light vehicles driving license in Abu-Dhabi on my first try itself. I know very well all expats having more doubts before applying for Driving License. let me explain clear step by step procedure.

What is a golden chance and who is eligible?
Those who are already having a driving license in their home country which people are eligible to apply for driving license by golden chance. For the golden chance, they give only direct road test for only one chance. golden chance does not contain any parking test, area test, bridge test like no other kinds of stuff. remember that if you failed in the first test you need to starts from the initial so more careful on First Try.

Document Required
1. Arabic No Objection Certificate from HR
2. Arabic Translated home Driving license from Typing centers
3. Clear Passport Copy
4. Clear Visa Copy
5. Emirates ID
6. Your Company Commercial License

(Those who are having Dubai visa and working in Abu-Dhabi need to submit both Dubai and Abu-Dhabi branch Commercial License after documents verifications they give one printed file opening application copy to you on that application you need to get signature from HR and you need to submit again and then they give appointment date to open the file.)

Visit Emirates driving company in mussafah to open a driving file and First, you need to test eye with the cost of Dhs.100 after eye test goes to the recipient to get your token for documents verifications. after documents verification, you need to open the file through AD Police application so you need to carry credit or debit card to pay Dhs.200 for file opening.

After successful file opening, you need to visit next building to book your Theory classes it takes Dh 871 and you need attend Mandatory eight hours theory class it takes four days or less as by your opinion. on the last date of theory classes, you need to book your theory test. A test will be conducted by Computer and oral. for this, my opinion is computer test was easy.

After passing theory test opens AD Police app(available in Playstore & App Store) and there was an option issue try date. for that, you need to pay Dhs.115 and they will send trainer card to given address. for the direct road test(Golden Chance) no mandatory practical training class but you should take at least 10 training class before try.

on your Try date, you need to visit the same building where you open your file and give you trainer card in reception and they give a token for your bus for that you need to pay Dhs.40 after that they pick you through a bus to the road for your try. the Try test contains only two minutes (if you take training before Try test you know that what you want to do in your try test)  after your try chance, they inform your result through SMS to your register mobile number.

if your result is Pass you need to open AD Police App and there was an option issue driving license for that you need to pay Dhs.315 within 4 days they send your license through mpost.

Hi bro! Congrats and Thanks!

Thanks in advance.

Hai I am Selva  from Abudhabi. Tomorrow  I have theory test for driving license.If anyone attended test recently. can you share your experience.How was the test?

what is the timing for file opening in EDC

Dear brother,
i appreciate your guidance. You have written step by step. I had followed all the steps. now i issued my try date and trainer card . i had applied on 22-10-2018 (8 days before). while applying i had given correct address for trainer card delivery. but still i did not received my trainer card. only in AD police app my trainer card is showing. So how many days it took for you to receive trainer card through post. i have my road test on 7-11-2018 that means only 8 days left. Do i get before my test? if i not received that through post ,can i show my trainer card through my mobile app on road test date for issuing the bus token? they will allow for road test?

Timing is from 9:00 am to 1:00 PM.

Dear brother @mdalameen2 ,
I also faced the same problem of delay in receiving my trainer card.
Please contact this no.  800 5000 and register a complaint.
After that, you will receive it within 4 days.

Thanks,
Mohi

hello! i recently went to open file to edc, having a dubai visa i followed your instructions and as my experience when i went to the verification he just said not allowed because dubai visa and he never talked to me again even after insisting i have all the required documents. what i did was i go straight to the counter and asked the person incharge. luckily he checked my documents and gave me the document to be filled up by my P.R.O. My question is, will that be enough for them and accept my application after i submit that document or i will still have to verify it again with the guy who just refused because im dubai visa?

Hi. The Abu Dhabi golden chance is closed..! Are still can i apply. Please answer me it's urgent..take care.
