Are you not able to register your used car Dubai due to unpaid fines? Here’s some great news! Dubai Police in collaboration with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) have announced that now it is possible to register your vehicles without paying traffic fines.
Motorists who haven’t been able to renew their vehicle registration can renew it regardless of any pending traffic fines. This has been done as an addition to the discount on traffic fines initiative. It aims to benefit Dubai residents as well as get car registrations done in time.
The discount initiative allows drivers to get 25% off their traffic fines if they do not commit any traffic offences for 3 months. Similarly, 50%, 75% and 100% of the traffic fines are waived off if no traffic rules are broken for 6 months, 9 months and 1 year, respectively. The discount is also applicable on seized vehicles and traffic points as well.
The aim is to reduce the number of traffic offences. This new law on car registration will give motorists a good incentive to drive their used car Dubai carefully. In order to do so, it is important to know the driving mistakes that can lead to fine. Although, if there are any RTA related fines, they have to be paid before vehicle registration.
This awesome initiative was implemented on 6th February. Both these schemes are only applicable for Dubai residents and cars registered in Dubai. Moreover, this discount is not applicable to parking fines or salik fines. Moreover, this discount is applicable to private cars only. Vehicles owned by private companies, rental services and transport companies are not eligible for this discount.
Dubai Police also reports that a total of 457,154 drivers have benefited from the 25% discount already. Additionally, a total of 1,260,047 traffic offences have been waived off with a 19% reduction in impounded vehicles.
This is all the more reason to register your used car Dubai in time. Similarly, traffic fine discount is an added bonus to drive your car safely and keep it in good condition. If you’re looking to buy a pre-owned and pre-inspected used car, there is no one better than CarSwitch.com.
