Car ‘registration’ book to have chip

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 1: Starting Sunday, Feb 2, 2020 the car registration book will contain information of the owner of the vehicle in both English and Arabic to avoid the problems faced by vehicle owners who travel with their cars to foreign countries, reports Al-Rai daily quoting reliable sources.

The same sources said the car registration book will now not be ‘a piece paper’ but will have a magnetic chip with complete information, easy to carry in the wallet and not prone to damage. The source said the new-look registration book is the idea of Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs Major- General Jamal Al Sayegh to keep pace with technological development, so that the traffic sector in its various departments operates according to technologically advanced systems.

In the context, the Ministry of Interior has issued an administrative circular to the general traffic sectors and service centers to inform citizens and residents after receiving the vehicle management licenses after Feb 2, not to remove the white bottom part of the car registration book.
