Default English to UAE driving license transfer with DR10

Can somebody tell me, will it be a problem to transfer my English driving license with a DR10 to a UAE driving license?

i dont think they are usually bothered about any sort of "endorsements" on them so i believe but of course there is always a first.

Won't be a problem. Either you handed the counterpart back at the time of conviction to the DVLA in which case you must have served it and it's just visible on the license. Or, you didn't give it back and no-one here will be any the wiser.

I just got my UK card license translated, didn't produce my paper license at any stage and was never asked for it.

I lost my paper part and wasn't asked for it also when getting it translated so maybe just take your card licence and see how you get on 1st

I've only got an old style paper license as never had the need to change to the new style.

Has anyone any recent experience of getting a UAE license using this?

Yep. I don't have a new style UK licence: no problem getting a UAE one in AD (albeit 5 years ago).

Did mine (in Dubai) about 18 months ago - no problems.
