Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), represented by the Licensing Agency, announced a programme for certifying motorcyclists of delivery companies in the emirate.
The step aims to improve the performance of delivery motorbike riders s and accordingly improve the services offered to a wide range of consumers and customers in Dubai. Such certification will also enhance the daily delivery operations in the emirate.
RTA stresses that delivery companies have to note that all motorcyclists associated with them must fulfil the requirements of obtaining a driver’s qualification certificate available through electronic platforms and applications.
Based on its strategic directions, RTA continuously seeks to raise the efficiency of the delivery business and the safety of delivery riders. A comprehensive practical and theoretical training programme has been developed for this purpose. The programme highlights the basics of defensive driving, safety requirements, and the periodic maintenance of bikes among others.
RTA is making unremitting efforts to meet the needs of this vital sector by rolling out several initiatives. Certificates will be issued to bikers after ensuring that they meet the professional requirements, and can mitigate the associated risks besides raising traffic safety.
Accordingly, companies must register their riders at one of the nine institutes accredited by RTA, which are: Al Ahli Driving Centre, Belhasa Driving Centre, Bin Yaber Driving Institute, Dubai Driving Centre, Emirates Driving Institute, Emirates Transport Driving Institute, Excellence Driving and Galadari Driving Centre. All companies operating in this business must register riders to avoid violations of the applicable laws and regulations.
RTA calls on all companies working in the delivery sector to cooperate out of their social responsibility to raise the efficiency of this vital economic and service sector and at the same time maintain the safety of their riders.
