Buying a used car in Dubai just got easier since the important historical information about the vehicle such as the distance covered in kilometres, type and validity of insurance, details of impoundment, type of vehicle, owner and condition during annual testing, etc. are only a few clicks away. The service also applies to imported used vehicles.
Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) launched the ‘Vehicle Condition Certificate’ service, which will provide relevant vehicle information to buyers of used cars if the owner gives his consent.
Once the owner gives his permission to the RTA through a text message including a pin code, 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 how to get the vehicle details from the RTA for a fee of Dh100 per certificate.
