Engineer – Change In Designation Driving Licence Cancelled How To Retain Licence Back
Category: Driving License
engineer-–-change-in-designation-driving-licence-cancelled--how-to-retain-licence-back_kuwait

I have been working as an engineer in a company in Kuwait since July 2016. I got driving licence in May 2017 valid till May 2019. My salary is KD 650. My residency will expire in August 2018. Now my company is renewing it with profession as Sales Officer (Masoul Mabiaat)/ Medical Representative (Mandoub Tibi).

1. Will my licence get cancelled, immediately or will I be able to use till May 2019?

2. If licence gets cancelled, can I apply for new licence immediately or will I have to wait for 2 years.

3. Is it required to make istemara and take driving test again for reapplying for the licence with new job designation?

Name withheld

Answer: When you got your licence in May 2017, you hadn’t stayed in Kuwait for at least two years from the date of your first entry as required by the traffic law to qualify to apply for a driving licence.

You, therefore, received an exemption on that score by virtue of your profession (engineer). We are not in position to determine if your new designation falls within the designation that qualifies for exemption. If it does, then your licence may be renewed.

On the other hand if it doesn’t, your licence will be cancelled. However, since you now meet the residency requirement and we assume that your KD 650 a month salary is reflected in your work permit, and also that you are a university graduate, you can reapply for a new driving licence.
