Sharjah is strictly zoned for industrial buildings and larger, non-mall retail e.g. car dealers, vehicle repair shops and furniture showrooms. Sharjah industrial zones are inland of main E-11 road that crosses from Ajman through Sharjah to Dubai - longest road in all UAE, changing names as it goes! Inland is E-311 Sharjah Ring Road - called Emirates Rd within Dubai - then further out E-611.
Driving in Sharjah
Drivers with a US or UK license (plus 32 other countries) do not have to take a driving test when getting their emirate's driving license, which is needed to buy and to register a car. Get an International Driver's License before leaving your home country. When you first arrive use taxis for a while to get oriented. If you want to get around more, you'll need to rent a car for up to a month, or at least until you get your residence visa, since you can't get a driver's license without a residence visa ... or sign a lease, or make ANY contract beyond your initial 30-day visitor visa
