UAE: You Can Get Your Driving Lessons in AED1 Million Car

Getting your license and learning how to drive in Dubai is an essential. Emirates Driving Institute offers several packages and its platinum package where you get the chance to learn driving in a Bentley has soared its demand for Dh23,000 to Dh30,000 platinum course.

Its collection includes a Dh1m Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne, Range Rover Sport, Mercedes G500 and C200, and an electric-powered Tesla Model X.

Those looking for a smaller upgrade from the Nissan Sunny people usually learn in, can opt for a Nissan Patrol or Mini Cooper.

The service of the platinum package has been launched in 2017 offering 10 lessons a month, however it is now taking bookings for 50 classes.

“It started when we asked people about the kind of cars they were driving once they passed their test,” said Fatima Raees, the institute’s director of marketing and customer service.

“Quite a few said they had already purchased an SUV or were going to drive their parent’s vehicle, which was often a large, high-powered car.

“The feedback we had was that people were learning to drive in a Nissan Sunny, but wanted to have lessons in their own vehicle.

“Some had luxury, high-end vehicles waiting for them at home.”

The institute’s goal is to work with the Roads and Transport Authority to develop a course to teach people how to drive luxury cars safely.

“The training begins the moment the client is picked up by the instructor,” said Taleb Mahmoud Mohammed, head of training and operations at EDI.

“Our instructors have been trained to know when to intervene, if necessary, as these cars are very powerful.

“The braking, distance control and cruise control options in these vehicles are completely different to the usual cars we have for learning.”

The lessons begin on a quiet road and each car has dual controls.
