The required documents to be able to renew your vehicle’s registration are:
- Valid Emirates ID
- Valid vehicle insurance for 13 months
- A vehicle inspection - if it has been more than three (3) years from the vehicle's manufacturing date
- Payment of traffic fines (if any)
A third-party liability car insurance policy (TPL) is normally the cheaper option but also the riskier. With a TPL insurance policy, your insurance company will not cover damages of your own vehicle when involved in an accident. It will only cover damages for the other parties when the accident is your fault.
A comprehensive insurance policy will cover damages of all parties when you are involved in an accident and found to be at-fault. Also, your insurance company will cover the damages of your car even when you are found to be not-at-fault in a car accident.
