RTA makes insurance compulsory in Dubai

RTA-corporate-logoThe Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has made online insurance policy mandatory for all Dubai vehicles from March 1. The move would not only provide hassle free services to the customers but also encourage owners to get their cars registered as their earliest by depositing required amount with the authorities.

Ahmad Hashim Behroozian, CEO of the RTA's Licensing Agency told, "We are trying to develop a mechanism with the help of insurance companies to stop the insurance of vehicles after expiry of their registration, because such vehicles pose serious threat to the road users."

Behroozian expressed that the vehicle owners living in Dubai with expired registration must come forward to avoid any strict eventuality. The federal government, according to RTA, is preparing to slap heavy fines against the offenders.

Mr. Behroozian also advised people to check the registration of insurance agency before getting their vehicle insured.
