UAE Salik for motorbikes????
 
Hi All

Does anyone know if motorbikes require a Salik tag here in Dubai?

Cheers

You mean the "congestion charge"? Of course we do. They're short of money.

I e-mailed Salik and was told bikes must have a tag but that it needn't be affixed to the bike because the cameras would read the number plate and deduct the toll without the tag being present. If you e-mail them, you might get a different answer but essentially the official answer is 'yes'.

I'm looking for a biker without a tag to test the system for a few weeks. In the meantime, I avoid the two gantries.

Ummm interesting. I called Salik and finally got through to confirm that yes, I do need the Salik tag for the bike.

The reason I asked was because my fiancee Sam (I think some of you might know him as Sheikyabooty) has been whipping it around town on his bike, through Salik since it begun and has never been charged! He has never even bought a Salik card.

I think we'll both have to get one to be on the safe side, just in case it comes to registration and they slap even more fines on us!!

You could try the Dubai Police online fine checker or a machine in one of the malls to see if any fines are recorded. Then let us know... :eek3:

Well, we checked and nothing! Not going to risk it though and going to buy a tag tomorrow. :thumbup1:
