Designations to obtain Driving license

 I would like to ask some issues connected to a driving license. I have read about the issue so many times in your Legal Clinic ... but still I have a question about designation. Are computer technicians exempted from the salary cap, as my salary on my work permit is KD 385 (with a minimum of KD 400 required by the Kuwait Traffic Department as one of the conditions for issuance of the driving license). I meet the other two requirements as I have a university degree and have been in Kuwait for over 2 years

Name withheld
Please remember that only the categories mentioned below are exempted from the requirements of getting a driving license.

Drivers for public bodies and companies, domestic servants, doctors, pharmacists, advisors, judges, experts, public prosecutors, lawyers, university and college professors, teachers, social workers, laboratory operators, engineers, foreign women married to Kuwaiti men, foreign divorcees, widows of Kuwaiti men, foreign husbands, children of Kuwaiti women, mosque imams, prayer callers, teachers of Holy Quran, librarians working in government authorities, journalists, nursing staff, x-ray technicians, managers and graduate accountants, professionals sports players and coaches, pilots, air-stewards and air-hostesses, students, graduate computer programmers, undertakers and those in-charge of burials, housewives with children or housewives with husbands earning more than KD 400 a month. So, as you see, your category is not among those exempted from the three conditions for a driving license. You also meet only two of those conditions as your salary is less than the minimum KD 400 set by the Kuwait Traffic Department.
