I am working as a sales representative for a distribution company. I am in fieldwork, going to one client to another, all outside the company sale. I have been in Kuwait for eight years and am a university degree holder but my salary is KD345. How can I get a driving license.

Name withheld
: According to the Kuwait General Traffic, you need to meet the following three requirements to be eligible to apply for a driving license:

1.Must have been in Kuwait for at least two years at the time of application

2.Must be a university degree holder
