Getting a Driving Licence in Sharjah!!
Getting a Driving Licence in Sharjah is a real nightmare! First, there’s the theory class and exam, once you clear that after months of waiting and classes, you will get the date for Parking test. By miracle, if you clear that you will be called for your “Kacha” test after 2-3 months, very few people clear their Kacha at one go! You flunk that and you will be asked to wait for months to get another date for the Kacha test. Once that is cleared, you have to undergo the “Pakka” test. The whole procedure of getting the Driver’s Licence in your hands could take more than a year!! By then you will be frustrated to the core for sure. The average cost of getting your DL in Sharjah is Dhs.5000/- Once you get the DL in your hands, the reality test begins on the road where you get confused with all the roundabouts, interchanges and signals. A person coming from other Emirates, especially from Dubai can easily get lost if they miss an interchange or roundabout. My friend who has lived in Dubai her entire life has been to Sharjah only a few number of times for fear of getting lost out here!!
