The process of transferring car insurance in the UAE isn’t as complicated as you might think. But there are some key steps you’ll need to complete before you can sign off on the paperwork.
First, you need to make sure your car has been registered properly. You can do this at your local Dubai Police station or at any of the RTA authorised centers in the city.
Next, you need to notify the relevant authority of your plan to transfer the ownership. This involves two steps: registering the car with the Traffic and Licensing Department, and informing your insurer of the transfer.
During this time, you’ll also need to pay off any outstanding traffic fines. Also, you might want to get your vehicle professionally inspected.
Finally, you’ll need to get a new car insurance policy in the new owner’s name. Depending on the size of your wallet, the cost of a policy can be anything from AED 300 to AED 750.
As with any insurance coverage, the process of transferring your car insurance is not necessarily the same for all insurers. Some companies have strict rules about transferring your car insurance from one provider to the next.
It is also important to remember that you’ll need to fill out an application form to complete the process. If you’re buying a second hand car, it’s a good idea to get the insurance transferred at the same time.
You’ll also need to find an authorised legal representative to handle the paperwork for you. You can do so online, but the process can take some time.
