Kuwait driving License for UAE driving license holder

I have been working as an engineer in Kuwait for just two months and in my work permit salary is shown KD 200 (offer letter is KD 450).

I have UAE driving licence also.

1. Please let me know if it is possible to take new licence here in Kuwait.

2. Is it possible to transfer UAE licence, which is easy?

Name withheld

Answer: To qualify to get a Kuwaiti driving licence you have to fulfil the following three conditions:

1. Have a university degree

2. Earn at least KD 600 a month

3. Must have been resident of Kuwait for at least two years at the time of application.

From the above, it is clear that even though we don’t know your educational background, you do not meet the 2nd and 3rd conditions and hence cannot apply for a driving licence in Kuwait.

As to whether it is possible to transfer your UAE licence to that of Kuwait’s all that we can say is that there is no harm in trying as some in the past tried and succeeded, others tried and failed.
