I think that you will have to do some lessons and a driving test. Please contact the Dubai Traffic Police to confirm from the source.

UK driver's license is allowed to get the USE license but your passoprt must match your license. So in your case the answer is No. Not without taking classes

However do expect to fail between 2-3 times before getting your license. The authorities here are not in a rush to issue new licenses in order to control the number of cars on the road, so the examiners are keen to fail applicants.
