Dubai's transport authority is set to issue electronic vehicle registration cards with no expiry dates next year.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said in a statement that the process will be rolled out in three stages starting in January.

The step is part of RTA’s electronic transformation drive, which is gradually being introduced to all services.

In the initial stage, the service will be available for government organisations, car rentals offices and taxis. The second stage will be launched to offer the service to private companies, and the third stage will kick off in September to offer the service to individuals.

Abdullah Yousef Al Ali, CEO of Licensing Agency at RTA, said: “The new electronic vehicle registration card aims to delight customers through saving their time and efforts by issuing cards using smart methods. Customers can avail this service through installing RTA-DUBAI or DUBAI DRIVE apps on smartphones.”

The project is part of Dubai's Smart City initiative.
