Dubai: E-scooter permits in Dubai can be applied for from tomorrow. Only those over 16 can get permission. The application should be submitted through the RTA website. Admission will be free for applicants. However, the Awareness training course must be completed successfully. A special permit is issued for the use of e-scooters safely on the streets of Dubai. Prior to issuing the permit, the awareness training program will cover the responsibilities of e-scooter riders, traffic signs, technical aspects of e-scooters and standards.
Holders of driving licenses, motorbike licenses and international driving licenses do not need special permits for e-scooters. E-scooters are not permitted to be driven on bicycles or sidewalks. It is a violation of the law to ride an e-scooter without a permit and to use an e-scooter that does not meet the standards allowed by the RTA. The fine is 200 dirhams.
