Motorists across the UAE can now pay fines easily in instalments and using credit cards from select banks. The instalment offer is valid only on fines issued by the RTA.
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) now accepts payment of fines through a convenient system that includes plastic money and instalments. Motorists can pay their fines incurred through credit cards of as many as seven banks. Fines issued by the RTA can be repaid in a maximum of 12 instalments. Interestingly, the instalments are interest-free. The offer is valid for all vehicles registered in the different Emirates. However, the instalment offer is only valid on fines issued by the RTA.
Ahmad Al Kaabi, Executive Director (Finance), RTA Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector said, “RTA has launched this service to enable clients to pay fines due to RTA in easy instalments through credit cards over a period of one year without incurring bank interests.”
Seven banks are earmarked and approved to disburse the instalment scheme to its credit card holders. The banks are as follows: Mashreq Bank, Abu Dhabi Commercial bank, Dubai Islamic Bank, EmiratesNBD, Noor Bank, Emirates Islamic Bank, and Commercial Bank International. Executive Director Al Kaabi added that more banks will be added to the service shortly.
To avail the finance offer, you need to process your payment through RTA Dubai’s smartphone app. Notably, there is no upper limit to the accumulated fine amount that can be paid through instalments.
Drivers in Dubai can pay their RTA fines via cheque as well, although this offer is only valid for Dubai-registered vehicles only. Instalments on the fine are also allowed only if the accumulated amount is Dh5,000 for individuals and Dh20,000 for companies.
