Ministry of Interior has launched electronic vehicle registration across the UAE. The MoI will launch an awareness campaign to educate public about the methods and use of e-registration, said Major-General Dr. Ahmed Nasser Al Raisi, Chairman, Ministry’s E-transformation Higher Committee, MoI.

The service is available on the Ministry’s smart applications UAE MOI as well as patrols’ UTS federal traffic and registration system applications, he said and added that technical team has trained policemen across the UAE on how to use the electronic vehicle registration.

He explained that it will be made available to some employees, and will gradually become available to all patrols through smartphones and tablets.

Brigadier Ghaith Hassan Al Zaabi, Director-General, Traffic Coordination Department, MoI, said the ministry will start fulfilling all the regulatory conditions of the e-transformation throughout all of the Ministry’s documents in regards to traffic across the UAE. “Once completed, this will allow the public to avail the services at all times – regardless of their location or the time of day,” he said.

First Lieutenant Mohammed Darwish Al Balouki, Head of Technical Team in charge of developing MoI’s smart applications, said: “Users of the Ministry’s applications UAE MOI can now view all vehicles registered under their name by accessing the Traffic Section followed by Registered Vehicles. By pressing the plate number, the application allows the user to view an electronic copy of the registration - which is considered a copy of the manual registration - and can be presented when needed.”

He also pointed out that the policemen are provided with “UTS”-backed applications on their smartphones, which help provide electronic registrations, drivers’ licences, and all of the information needed to facilitate patrolling procedures.
