Can I get a driving licence or lessons in Dubai with a tourist visa?
I havent done any driving before and was wondering if it was possible to get lessons
in Dubai with a tourist visa? I've got a UK passport and I would've taken lessons in England,
though I never really found the time, and also lessons are much cheaper over here in Dubai.
lessons rather than a licence but I guess the outcome would still be the same

Those things mentioned before my answer are for obtaining the initial permit which you need to get to start taking driving lessons , it is not a license , the license you get after passing the road test.
But why don't you just take lessons i UK , what is so complicated about that since you are (I assume) a resident already and don't need any visas. WIth a UK license you can drive in Dubai while being a tourist as long as you get an IDP also.

Additional to the 2 previous correct answers: You cannot open a RTA file [which is mandatory to obtain driving lessons] without a residence visa. Simple as that.
If you take [illegal] lessons from a certified driving instructor and you got caught by RTA inspectors [Note: they are buzzing around like stinging bees] the driving instructor would loose his license and his/her job. So forget that too.Source(s): My wife is a certified driving instructor in Dubai.

Of course not. You need to be a legal resident in the UAE to obtain an UAE DL.Source(s): common sense
