Is Opening File the First Step in Driving License Application?

Different emirates, different rules. But what I will be discussing is applicable in the Emirates of Abu Dhabi.

In Abu Dhabi, before opening the file, there should be Submission of documents first. This is for Abu Dhabi Traffic Department to assess if you will be qualified in opening a file for driving license.

The requirements needed for a driving license to see are the following:

  • An eye test that is done by any accredited optical shops
  • A valid passport
  • A valid visa that should be issued from Abu Dhabi or Al Ain
  • A valid Emirates ID
  • A driving license form filled up in our office
  • A live photo click that will be done in our office

Once we have finished submitting all those requirements above, you will be receiving an SMS coming from the Traffic Department confirming that they received your application and they will provide you a Driving License Number and Application number.

Once approved, the DL number and Application number is the one that will be used in doing the opening of a file.

So, regarding the question in the beginning, is it the first step? The answer is NO. Because the first step is submission of documents.
