Now, get used-car history from RTA

Dubai: Used car buyers can now get history of the vehicle they want to buy through a new service launched by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) on Sunday.

The new service called ‘Vehicle Condition Certificate’ offers the applicants detailed information of the vehicle such as the distance it has clocked, its previous owners, its condition during the last annual test, how many times it was impounded if any etc.

“The launch of the ‘Vehicle Condition Certificate’ service is an excellent addition to the licensing services on offer. It provides clients with essential detailed information available with the RTA about the vehicle condition,” said Sultan Al Marzooqi, Director of Vehicles Licensing at RTA’s Licensing Agency.

He added that the service can be availed only with the consent of the owner, which has to be confirmed to the RTA through a text message including a Pin Code.

“Upon fulfilling this requirement, the customer can avail the service by entering the chassis number of the used vehicle through RTA website ( The RTA will then inform the customer about the possibility of getting the vehicle details from the RTA for a fee of Dh100 per certificate,” said Al Marzooqi.
