How to renew car registration in Al Ain

Melissa asked by email… “Where can I renew my car registration in Al Ain?”

Here’s what I believe is the answer…

From the Etisalat building, head west.

About 3-4 roundabouts from there, you’ll see the Choueifat School on the far right of the roundabout (white walls with circular logo). Turn left here.

Go across 2 roundabouts. On the right is the Adnoc car testing centre.

Enter the main building there, and get a ticket from reception.

You’ll get served soon after that.

I think they open at 7.30am and are open all day (i.e. they don’t close from 1-5pm as most places do).

    It’s usually less busy in the afternoon but watch out for the shift change at 3pm. Things often grind to a halt for about 45 minutes then.

    I live in Dubai but buying a car from Al Ain.
    Can anyone please where in Al Ain can i get the private computerized auto testing done? This is to check if the car is ok (not the same as the ADNOC testing)
    can anyone please send me the location (on the map) of where the ADNOC testing centre is.

    Hi Noman,

    Go and see Ibrahim who has that equipment, and charges a good price. Go here…

    He will give you directions to the ADNOC testing centre which isn’t far from his workshop.
