The Classification of the Motor Vehicles in the UAE Law
Amended by the Federal Law No. (21) of 2007

The Motor Vehicle has been defined in Article No. (1) of the UAE Traffic Law which amended by the Federal Law No. 21 of 2007 as follows;
The motor vehicles shall be classified as follows:
1) The light vehicle:
Any vehicle designed for transporting persons or goods whose empty weight does not exceed 2.5 tons including the saloon car, and the motorcycle designed or prepared for the transportation of goods regardless of its weight.
It is also classified into two types: private and public.
2) The heavy vehicle:
Any vehicle designed for transporting goods whose empty weight is in excess of 2.5 tons.
It is also classified into two types: private and public.
3) The bus:
Any vehicle designed to transport more than fourteen passengers, it is classified into two types:
a) Light bus whose capacity does not exceed twenty-six passengers excepting the driver.
b) Heavy bus whose capacity exceeds twenty-six passengers excepting the driver.
All types of buses stated above are classified into private buses and public buses.
4) Mechanical tractors and other mechanical devices: The vehicles designed for purposes other than transportation of persons or goods.
They are classified into three types:
a) The devices that run on other than wheels regardless of weight.
b) The light devices running on wheels whose empty weight does not exceed 7.5 tons.
c) The heavy devices running on wheels whose weight is in excess of 7.5 tons.
5) Handicapped carriers:
The vehicles whose weight does not exceed 250 kgs designed or manufactured specifically for use by persons with a corporeal deficiency or incapacity, used only by them, and do not include the mechanical vehicles which were modified for such use after their manufacture.
6) Motorcycles.

The importance of the abovementioned classification is that it specifies all the identified machines as vehicle. Accordingly, it is subject to the provisions of the said law. On the other hand, the legislator has distinguished between them for the particularities of each vehicle in terms of the legal mechanism in dealing with each. For example, there are obligations imposed by the law on the drivers of the vehicles which specialized in transporting the passengers and the drivers of the heavy vehicles which are not imposed on the drivers of the light vehicles. Also, when licensing the vehicle, the law stipulates that the license applicant must have completed the age of 17 for disabled vehicles and motorbikes while for buses the minimum age required is twenty-one years.
In addition to the other restrictions and obligations that distinguishes the types of mechanical vehicles from others.
