Dubai: The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai announced that it will launch e-scooter licence permits by the end of this month. Users will be able to apply for the free permit on the website of RTA.

To get the licence all users must attend training courses and pass an online test. ‘Obtaining this permit shall be a prerequisite for permitting the riding of scooters on safe roads in the announced areas. However, holders of vehicle driving licences, international driving licences or motorcycle driving licences are excluded from obtaining such a permit’, said RTA.
