New traffic laws to come into effect in July

The new rules will include regulations regarding driving in residential areas, a five-metre safety rule and sitting in front seats. Furthermore, new driving licenses issued in the UAE will be valid only for two years. The licenses of UAE nationals can be subsequently renewed for 10-year periods while expatriates can renew their licenses every 5 years. Current driving licenses will not be affected.
