KD 15 fine for not carrying driving license?
KUWAIT CITY, Nov 30: The General Traffic Department (GTD) in the Interior Ministry had earlier announced that presenting the digital driving license in the ‘My Identity’ application without the original license is a violation of the law, reports Al-Rai daily. The GTD also pointed out that those who do not carry their license while driving are fined KD15.
However, the Public Relations and Security Media General Department later retracted the above mentioned announcement; affirming “the electronic driving license has been approved and it is considered a driving license issued by GTD. This is within the framework of realizing the e-government vision and implementation of the decision of the Council of Ministers to adopt the ‘My Identity’ application. GTD fully supports all electronic procedures aimed at easing the online processing of transactions for citizens and expatriates.”
