The iPads, said the statement, have been distributed to the RTA’s inspectors as part of the first phase of the project.

Sultan Al Marzouqi, Director of Driver Licensing at the Authority, said RTA is keen to develop plans and strategies in line with the vision of the authority in launching technical projects and initiatives to keep pace with Dubai’s efforts to provide the best and finest services to members of the community.

“We saw a need to work on transforming the testing services of vehicle drivers to electronic to be in line with the constant changes, through distributing tablets to inspectors during the practical testing of trainees, which will facilitate the licensing application, by recording observations and errors committed by the trainee during the test in a very accurate and clear manner than the old handwriting method on paper,” he said.

He added: “These tablets can calculate all errors. Once connected to the internet, they are directly linked to the electronic traffic system and show the final result of the trainee. More info
