The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is intending to divert several licensing services to smart channels starting from the end of this month.

The step is part of a strategy to gradually divert all services in line with our government’s policy to limit the number of clients at service centres and make the Smart City initiative a reality.

“As of the end of this April, customers seeking 8 licensing services will be prompted to use smart channels. The services will be gradually phased out at service centres such that they will cease by the end of June,” said Abdullah Yousef Al Ali, CEO of Licensing Agency, RTA.

“The services that will go online are renewal of registration of vehicles that need testing, list of registered vehicles, return from tourist trips, registration of the first owner, vehicle(s) ownership certificate, re-insurance certificate, replacement of lost/damaged ownership certificate, and clearance certificate, he added.

He added that the RTA is planning to divert more services by the end of September this year including the payment of fines, renewal of vehicle ownership with a different number plate, and the changing of the number plate.
