PC operator needs driving licence

I have a query on the eligibility criteria for applying for a driving license. My work permit states salary as KD 600 and my designation ‘PC Operator.’ Am I eligible to apply for a driving license or does the designation need to change? Kindly guide please.

Name withheld

Answer: The eligibility criteria for obtaining Kuwaiti driving licence are as follows.

1. Be a university graduate

2. Earn a monthly salary of at least KD 600

3. Having been a resident of Kuwait for not less than two years If you meet all the above criteria, designation does play a role in determining whether you are granted a driving licence or not.

It is only when you fall short of any one or all the above criteria and hence seeks an exemption, that designation comes into play. To quality for the exemption you must belong to a determined group of professions.
