Sharjah opens driving licences to all professions

Sharjah Police have announced it is now accepting applications for driving licences from almost all expatriates working and living in the emirate regardless of their profession, ending a five-year ban on specific professions, Gulf News has reported. In 2008, a ban was placed against 86 low-paid or low-income workers, in what was attributed then to rationalisation of issue of driving licences and banning categories that don't need to drive, the daily said. The new amendment on the decision was implemented on August 28.
