If you're unfamiliar with the process of selling your car in Dubai, it can be a little overwhelming.
From advertising the vehicle to dealing with inquiries to having it tested and contending with a whole lot of paperwork... Selling your vehicle here can be tedious at times.
As per the law, every car sold secondhand must pass Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority's (RTA) mandated vehicle test. Understandably, your first instinct might be to reach out to the RTA for this since you've no doubt dealt with them during your time as owner of the car. But with the RTA there's a chance you might be left waiting up to three hours for a simple, 30-minute check.
With over 30 years of experience in the automotive industry, the British-owned and operated company can make buying, selling or trading your car in Dubai a swift and hassle-free experience.
Based in Al Barsha, Expat Motors onsite RTA facilities to assist with vehicle testing and ownership transfer. In fact, you can complete the full process of selling your car with the company, who offer a full package to help make selling your vehicle easy.
As part of this overall package, your vehicle will undergo a 160 point check, which examines everything from your engine compartment and your electrical controls to your suspension, transmission, exhaust, fuel, brakes, underbody, body exterior, and interior. To find a full detailed list of what the 160 point check entails, visit Expat Motors official website here.
Once your testing is completed, you will receive a stamped certificate.
This document will confirm that your vehicle has undergone the required testing before being sold. It's important to note though, that you have up to 30 days only, post vehicle test, to complete the required transaction to the buyer. The team at Expat Motors will assist in facilitating this.
How much does the approval certificate and test cost?
It costs AED 499 +VAT to have your vehicle tested and certified by the Expat Motors team. This price covers the cost of the 60 minutes, 160 points check and testing by their team of experts at their onsite RTA facilities. Plus, it includes the cost of the certified certificate you will receive.
