Driving license of an Engineer after designation change

I’m an engineer working in Kuwait since 2013 on engineer visa; my licence issued in 2014 expires in 2024. But in MoI site the licence shows as expiring in Jan 2020. Last year my designation changed from Engineer to Administration employee due to KSE NOC issue. Will you please advise if after Jan 2020 my license will be blocked or cancelled?

Name withheld

Answer: The fact is that you changed your designation from engineering to administrative employee and you still have your licence with the expiry date written as Jan 2020. If your licence was blocked or cancelled it would have been done immediately after the change in designation was effected and would not have been given a ‘grace period’ of up to Jan 2020. We can safely conclude that the change in designation has not affected the validity of your passport which we believe will continue to be renewed in accordance with the validity of your residence permit.
