Dangers of Driving Without a License

Here’s what you are exposing yourself if you are driving without a license:

FINES

You are misguided if you believe that the appropriate authorities will ignore your offence. Just for the first offence, they have the authority to impose a fine of AED 5,000. You will probably accrue more fines if you continue to drive without a licence.

JAIL TERM

You should be concerned about more than just paying a fine because you also run the risk of going to jail. According to the applicable legislation, the government may imprison you for a maximum of three months. Anyone wouldn’t want it, in my opinion.

LAWYER FEES

You will need a lawyer if your case proceeds to court, which will increase your costs. Trust us when we tell it is not worthwhile to drive without a licence.

YOUR CAR OR MOTORCYCLE MAY BE IMPOUNDED

Your car or motorcycle may be impounded by the authorities. You must pay significant costs and further fines in order to get it out. The possibility of a permanent impoundment by the authorities is what worries me the most.

INSURANCE RATES WILL GO THROUGH THE ROOF

Your profile is taken into account by car insurance providers when calculating the insurance rate. They will raise the rate if they discover that you were driving without a licence. Why?
