Emirates Driving Institute - Road Test - what a joke Aug 13, 2009
Road test has really became a joke, I got this local guy who wouldn't stop yelling and accusing me of doing things I did not do.

he got so nervous and accused me of not knowing how to switch lanes, (I drove in Dubai for over 9 months with my international license)

of course there is this question : how many times did you do road test before? very helpful especially knowing that you cannot complain before your fifth try !

the EDI informed me of a test on 8:30 AM, after traveling all the way from JBR to al Qusais, I had wait until 3:30 for my turn to come .

What an irony , their slogan says : "Proud to be Professional"

professional my ass.

lol

Do what my wife did, after umpteen tests she threatned to move to another institute. They tried their best saying things like " oh you will be put on the waiting list and dunno how long before you can start learning again, better stick with us"

But she refused all attempts by them to stay and went to demand her file back. Then they said OK tell you what just do this one last test and we will give you a special instructor and we will have someone highup take your test.

And viola after a couple of days and a test later, she had her license !

P.S : This was with Bel Hasa. Try pulling the same crap with EDI and maybe when they see $$$ walking out the front door ??????

Someone I know open up a file in government office 1 year ago and NOBODY calls back. When you go there they tell you why did you come we will call you.

There are some idiots in sharjah DL offices. Some people wait for 2 years. You can get degree in 2 years LOL.

Need an advice about what to do?
Which license office do you recommend?
