There are several mandatory vehicle inspections in Dubai which you must undergo before you can purchase a new or used car. These inspections include: 

  • The Car Registration and Inspection (CR&I) Department at Dubai Police will check your vehicle's registration, make, model and year.

  • The Vehicle Import and Export Authority (VIA) will inspect your car for any prohibited items such as weapons and explosives.

  • Dubai Department of Roads (DDR) will test your car's engine and brakes.

  • Dubai Municipality's Traffic Control Department will check your car for any parking violations.

If any of these inspections result in a warning or an advisory, you'll need to take corrective action before you can purchase the vehicle. For example, if DTR finds that your engine needs to be serviced, you'll need to take this into account when negotiating the price of the car. 

Always note the date of these inspections. Make sure you understand exactly what's required so you won't be surprised by additional requirements. In most cases, you'll need to take all advised actions before the inspection is complete. For instance, if DTR notices a history of problems with your brakes, it will likely advise that you have them fixed before the transaction can proceed. Always remember that any attempt to avoid paying on a vehicle in Dubai is illegal and could result in financial penalties and imprisonment.
