KUWAIT CITY, March 28: Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs Major General Fahad Al-Shuwei, during the ceremony, highlighted the controversies related to major traffic violations which result in deportation of an expatriate violator.
He assured expatriates by saying, “There will be no deportation except for two cases, which are driving without license and carrying passengers as taxi without necessary license”.
Major General Al-Shuwei revealed that some motorists who receive driving licenses are unaware of the traffic culture, affirming that the ministry will facilitate its capabilities to spread traffic culture and awareness.
In response to a press question concerning news which is being circulated about issuance of 330,000 driving licenses to Egyptian expatriates, Major General Al-Shuwei clarified that the correct number is 196,000, and not 330,000, indicating that all these licenses were issued before 2016.
