A drive-thru registration for vehicles three years-old or less is to be trialled in Dubai, officials have said.

The new ‘Drive Thru Express’ service will cut the amount of time it takes a motorist to register their vehicle to five minutes.

A three-month pilot scheme will be trialled at the Tasjeel centre in Al Barsha and if successful rolled out to other centres, the authority said in a statement on Tuesday.

Motorists will not have to “wait in line or leave the comfort of their vehicles; they can just drive through to the service counter,” Tasjeel, an ENOC and Road Transport Authority (RTA) joint venture for vehicle registration services, said.

Only vehicles that are three years-old or less can be registered in this way.

“We expect the service to generate an enthusiastic response from vehicle owners,” said Ayas Bin Hendi, general manager of Tasjeel.

“Depending on customer demand, we plan to implement the ‘Drive Thu Express’ service in two other Tasjeel sites, at Al Qusais and at the Sharjah Auto Village.”
