How do I transfer ownership of my car in Abu Dhabi?
Transferring Ownership of your car is a tricky process hence a managed service (CarSwitch.com) is here to help. Sell your car with CarSwitch and we will guide you through the entire process from bringing you serious buyers to transferring ownership of your used car. Still interested in transferring your car on your own? Below are the steps and documents you require to do so.
Before transferring ownership, sellers must ensure the buyer has a valid UAE resident visa, a UAE driver license, and an insurance certificate. The seller needs to have the mulkiya, Emirates ID, passport with residence visa, and confirmation of loan payment/transfer of loan if the car is on loan. Once these documents are attained, an RTA appointment can be scheduled.
At the RTA:
- Sellers should clear any outstanding fines - please note whilst most fines can be dealt with at the RTA quickly, there are some fines such as violations that have received black points in another Emirate which will need to be cleared before you organise a visit to the RTA.
- Buyers should fill out a vehicle permit application form at the typing centre.
- Get your car inspected - A successful basic inspection is a prerequisite by the RTA before transferring ownership. Therefore, sellers should consider fixing major faults before the RTA visit. 2 main reasons for failing the inspection are worn down tires or brakes. It’s highly recommended that the buyer does a comprehensive inspection at RTA to have a good understanding of the car condition at the point of purchase.
- Transferring the car - Once the above steps are cleared, a vehicle registration fee must be paid in order for the new registration card to be issued. A further license plate printing fee must be paid if applicable for this to be issued. Sellers can hand over their existing license plate to the RTA for a fee if they want to hold it for future car registration.
- Salik Tag - Seller’s should remove their salik tag from the car to avoid the buyer using their tag. Buyer’s can purchase a new salik tag at the RTA.
CarSwitch will guide you through the transfer with free access to our partner lane at Tasjeel and provide step-by-step instructions to ensure you’re well prepared. For more information, you can also read up on how to transfer your car at the RTA.
What happens to my insurance if I sell my car?
If you sell your car, you have to cancel the car insurance. There is also an alternative option of transferring this to the new owner. However, you will need to confirm if this is possible from your insurance provider. To cancel your insurance policy, all you need is a copy of the new registration card from the new car owner. It is also worth checking if your insurance is refundable as you might get some money back on your original premium depending on your insurance provider. On the other hand, to transfer your car insurance to the new owner, you will need: Existing policy document No objection letter from the seller New application form Registration certificate Car Inspection Report This should be done immediately after transferring ownership of the car because failure to do so would mean any insurance claims will not be paid by the insurance company if there is an accident.

To sell your car which is currently under loan - first, you will need to contact your bank to find out the outstanding loan amount as well as the early settlement fee if applicable. Once you know the exact outstanding amount, the 2 options you have to sell your car is:
Find a buyer willing to clear your auto loan
In order to guarantee the buyer that the transfer of ownership will be done to their name once the auto loan is cleared, a “Seller's Agreement” will be required to be signed. The buyer will then need to visit the bank with the seller for the loan payment. The safest method to make this payment is via cash or manager's cheque.
Search for a buyer who is willing to buy the car on finance
In this scenario, the buyer has to agree to use the same bank as the seller. Once the buyer agrees to this and approval for auto loan transfer has been received by the bank, the buyer needs to present a car valuation certificate against the loan amount. CarSwitch can organize this certificate for a cost starting from AED 300. Once this certificate is obtained, the seller can settle the owed amount with the bank. The buyer will need to provide the bank with the new registration card along with insurance papers to complete the transfer and close the loan.
