Driving license cancelled – Applying for new driving license

I got a driving license in March 2014 when my designation was of a driver. It was for 10 years but then my position in the company changed to technician in November 2014.

Now check on the MoI (Ministry of Interior) site which says it is valid but on checking with Muroor (Traffic Department) it was found to have been cancelled.

My question is when can I apply for the driving license. Its been 2 years but the license is with me. If the license card is with me can I apply or not? I always seeing you giving the correct answer, so waiting for your valuable reply.

Answer: Your driving license has been cancelled as the Traffic Department computers show the correct situation — linked to the validity of your residence. It doesn’t matter if you have the license with you after its cancellation as the Traffic Department doesn’t take it back, it just updates the information in the computers.

According to the latest law on the subject, you can reapply for the driving license two years after its cancellation.
