The number of traffic and licensing services provided through smart phone applications by the UAE’s Ministry of Interiors (MOI) has amounted to 13 services, said a top official.
These new services are launched under the slogan “One Application… Multiple Services” through the ministry’s UAE MOI application, and embody the UAE Smart Government initiative aimed at developing services and streamlining customers’ access to these services.
Brigadier Ghaith Hassan Al Zaabi, director general, Traffic Coordination Directorate General at the Ministry of Interior, said that these services include eight procedural services, notably; renewing vehicle registration; replacing lost or damaged vehicle registration cards; postponing or advancing vehicle inspection date; paying fines; and reserving license plates.
The other five services are interactive and include inspection date notifications; vehicle registration renewal date notifications; violations’ notifications; license plates reservation notifications; and driving license renewal notification.
Brigadier Al Zaabi noted that the provision of these services via the MoI Smart Applications saves time and effort for citizens and residents alike, and enables them to obtain the required service without the hassle of visiting the various licensing departments.
