Dubai: Renewal of vehicle registration will soon be possible from the convenience of shopping centres as well as Metro stations in Dubai, Gulf News can confirm.

The registration facility will be part of a series of services, including renewal of driving licence, payment of fines, applying for seasonal car parking, that the Roads and Transport Authority will roll out through smart kiosks set to be installed across malls in the city.

As many as six smart kiosks have already been installed at various RTA customer service centres and 10 more have been lined up for installation in the next few month.

Ahmad Mahboob, Director of RTA’s Customers Service, said that the smart kiosks initiative is part of RTA’s vision to provide services round the clock at convenient locations, as directed by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

“The smart kiosk is part of our strategy towards enhancing customer satisfaction in terms of saving their time and effort in processing their transactions. The service has proved successful so far with 73,000 transactions processed through the kiosks, which has encouraged us to go with ahead with our plans,” said Mahboob. More info
