Yes, it is required by law that every car in the UAE should be insured. You can purchase insurance direct from the insurer (online, over the phone or in one of their branches), through a broker or at a car dealership. Of course, there are many insurance brokers like Gargash Insurance Services (Refer: and many others. Choose the best one that suits your requirements.

It is mandatory motor insurance in UAE. Third party insurance policy is a basic compulsory insurance in UAE which provides cover against death or bodily injury to any third party as well as property damage by insured vehicle. In UAE third party liability will generally be the only option if your car is 7 years or older.
