Driving license for diploma holder

I have an inquiry regarding driving licence. My current salary is KD 600 and my designation is salesman. I hold a technical diploma from a university. Can I get a driving licence?

Name withheld

Answer: According to Traffic Department regulations, in addition to meeting the salary requirement (which you meet), you should have also stayed in Kuwait for at least two years and hold a university degree.

Granting that you meet the two-year stay requirement we are afraid that you are still not qualified to apply for a Kuwaiti driving licence as you hold a university technical diploma. Having said this, we are aware that some diploma certificates are equated with university degrees. So if you believe your diploma falls under this category, you can apply for an equivalence certificate from the Private Education Department of the Ministry of Education and armed with this you can apply for the licence.
