--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi All,
My name is Elle and I live in Ireland. I have always harboured a desire to live and work abroad but work and study got in my way until now. I'll give you a brief synopsis of my situation. I have 5 years experience working in PR with companies in Dublin however I lost my last job as the company went into liquidation. To cut a long story short this unfortunate situation occured last January and since then I availed of my time off and travelled for 9 monhs around the States. I'm back now and I'm keen to get a PR job abroad asap! I was thinking of Duabi (tax free earnings and v hot weather!) and I received positive feedback from 2 agencies there so I could secure a position in the New Year. The problem is I don't hold a full Irish drivers licence (I have a provisional - half the irish population drive with provisionals here!). If I held a full Irish drivers licence I could tranfer it over and receive a UAE licence. But I am sitting my driving test in March. Does anyone out there know what the procedure is with regards to sitting the driving test in Dubai? Or can I use my provisional and tranfer it over so I can secure the UAE licence? I've been to Dubai on hols and its impossible to get around without a car.
Ok thats it for now. As I said I'm thinking of Duabi for now but I'm open to suggestions from anyone out there re countries to live and work in. I'm not sold on the UK (sorry u guys have the same weathr as us!) I think I could be waiting a while before I recieve the skilled workers visa for Canada but I'm also thinking of New Zealand! Any suggestions are welcome!
thank u!
Elle

Dubai is a good place to be for many reasons. Summer all year round, food is amazing, night clubs, hotels, good salaries..
Driving school is quite affordable there and exam is way easier than anywhere else.
