(do i have to take classes all over again? how easy is the process?) i have a US driving license as well but i know that holds no value since I am not a US citizen.
also, what are good sites/dealers to look for used cars at good prices? i assume that private party sales are obviously cheaper than dealer ones. so where can i find those private sellers?
thanks again.. you guys are really helpful..
Whoops! Sorry man, thought you said 30k dirhams!
To try and answer your questions:
Insurance is usually around 5% of the car value.
Fuel - No one gives a crap about fuel costs here because its so cheap so I wouldnt worry about a 3.0 litre!
Not sure about the driving license thing. I had a UK one when I came here and all they did was make me do an eye test and then take my pic......thats was it; along with a few dirhams of course. Think it was 200.
There are quite a few used cars sites. I'd leave that until you get here though, they are easy to find on the UAE Google.
