    Hello everyone,

    Do you reckon my wife could show up at the Traffic department office on my behalf to de-register the car, as I was repatriated in Europe…?

    • Hi,
      I believe you need Authorization Letter to your wife, signed by you.
      You can email her PDF copy of your signed document, which your wife can print and bring to Traffic Office.
      Your letter should mention that you’re now out of UAE and that you need to de-register your car, etc…
      Copies of your IDs could help as well, along with your signed letter.
      I hope that helps.
      Regards…

      Sure am glad that you find something helpful from the documentation I’ve posted more than 8 years ago :)
      I hope you got your car de-registered smoothly and cleared out of your responsibility.
      Cheers!

    • Hi Mr Phillips,
      How are you?
      About deregisteration, as far as I remember, you just need to contact “junk shop” and they can pick up your car even give you forms to start legal deregisteration, complete with few hundred dirhams for junk owner :)
      I hope just like me, you also have mechanic friends who can lead you to such shop.
      Bon voyage!
      Richard
