All UAE residents can take driving lessons without a no-objection certificate from their employer.

Emirates Driving Institute confirmed the new policy last week on social media.

Previously, lawyers, doctors, teachers, pilots and accountants were among people from about 60 professions who did not need a no-objection certificate.

“NoC from sponsor is not required,” a post on the EDI's Facebook page said.

“Now you can open a file to obtain a Dubai driving licence without a NoC from the sponsor."

An EDI representative confirmed the rule was in place and that anybody could take driving lessons.

However, residents need to provide a copy of their passport and residence visa page, the original and a copy of their Emirates ID card, two photographs and an eye test report to register for lessons.
