In Dubai, there is a road tax Salik. In this regard, you need to know all about the account, as well as ways to avoid penalties.

What is Salik

A special automatic system that collects tolls provides access throughout Dubai to points where vehicles are charged. The UAE government's plan was to create a single system that would collect the tolls without drivers having to stop and pay the tax. The system was introduced in 2007.

Radio Frequency Identification Technology (RFID) was created to scan Salik tags. This system checks the vehicle and makes a deduction from Salik bills that are prepaid, according to the agreed rate.

If you plan to rent out vehicles, a Salik account is required. This procedure does not take much time. You fill out a simple application on the official portal of Salik. You also need to visit the Islamic Bank of Dubai or another bank. Opening a Salik account is available at some petrol stations.

To open an account, you need to provide a registration card, license and ID card. Then the payment of 100 UAE dirhams for the text and the balance of the account is made.

When the Salik online account is accessed, a special sticker is affixed to the vehicle. Online provides balance management.
