Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has issued a circular according to which 33 nationalities are allowed to get a driving license without any hurdle or further testing process in UAE.
These nationalities are included due to the fact that traffic rules and driving difficulties are the same for Dubai and these 33 nationalities. The nationals of these countries can exchange their driving license with the UAE driving license.

25- The United States of America.
Can a resident of these countries avail of this option?
For example, if someone has ever worked in Saudi Arabia on Iqama and has a valid driving license issued from Saudi Arabia, can he exchange it with the Dubai Driving License?
The answer is “NO”. You need to be a national of these countries to be eligible to exchange it. For example, being a Pakistani national having a Saudi driving license, you cannot exchange it with the UAE license.
