Golden Visa holders can get a driving licence in Dubai without the need for training if they already have a licence issued by their home country.

That's according to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), which said such applicants can skip training but they will have to complete the knowledge and road tests.

The authority outlined the details in a Tweet.
