Looks like you have been to Nigeria about as much as me! I was there as an expat brat from about 9-17yrs old (1980-1990's). That must be where I get the 'challenges' bit from. It also helped reduce my expectation of customer service and time-keeping. Having learned to drive in Lagos meant Sheikh Zayed Road was a doddle when I got to Dubai
Imagine trying to get that thing changed in Lagos "Oga, ah beg bring money-O" Small mercies for no NEPA tho!

I phoned RTA in Dubai today who confirmed I CAN drive with my UAE licence in my own car whilst on a visit visa. The vehicle registration (expires in a few weeks) cannot be renewed until I get my new residence visa.
jebelaligardener - Thanks for confirming this...makes life a whole lot easier!
