Electronic NOCs for driving licenses in Dubai

In a bid to phase out existing paper-based transactions, the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, has set up an online system enabling employers to issue NOCs to employees seeking to obtain driver licenses.

"Developing this online system caters to the needs of business organisations for a standardised online system for the issuance of NOCs to some categories of employees who are required to present such NOCs for obtaining driver licenses," said Jamal Assada, Director of Drivers Licensing at RTA’s Licensing Agency.

"The initiative, which conforms to the Smart City initiative, requires the concerned company to sign-up in RTA website (www.rta.ae) and open an account for the transaction to avail the benefit of issuing the NOC online," he continued.

"The System saves the time of applicant as the NOC can be issued in less than three minutes, besides saving the hassles of preparing and endorsing letters and enhancing the governance of transactions," he added.
