The 28-year-old Indian, identified as AA, on Wednesday denied the charges before a Dubai court and said the money was a fee.

On April 11, AA allegedly offered dirham 1,000 ($272) to the driving instructor, as he felt he committed mistakes during the test and feared failing it.

The driving instructor testified in court that on that day, he left with four trainees, including the Indian for the test from a driving centre. The Indian apparently committed a number of mistakes during the test.

After returning to the centre, the driving instructor asked the trainees to wait for the results but was surprised when the Indian took out two dirham 500 notes and offered them to him. The Indian allegedly told him "I am a poor and tired man", the Gulf News reported.

The public prosecution has charged the Indian man with trying to bribe the 38-year-old instructor.
