I was on engineering visa for a previous company. I have changed my company while my designation on the work permit has been changed to foreman. My license is expiring in December 2016. When I went for renewal of the license, they said that a license had not been issued for my Civil ID. When I went to Ministry of Information website, the license was still valid. Can I renew my license? My salary is above KD 600 and I possess a degree certificate.
Answer: Your change in designation should not affect the renewal of your license “unless you were earlier given exemption (as an engineer) because you did not meet the requirements for a driving license.
You should visit the Kuwait Traffic Department again and clear the situation because we see no hurdle in the renewal of your driving license. You have to remember that in case your license is withdrawn, you will have to wait two years until you can reapply for the same.
