Renewal of driving license from “Driver” designation to new designation

I have driving license issued in 2003 when my position was that of a driver. The license will expire in January 2017. My current position is merchandizer. Can I renew my license without any issue?

Name withheld

Answer: No, unfortunately, you will not be able to renew your license because of the change in your job status. All expatriates, who got their driving licenses when their job status was “driver”, lose these licenses when there is a change in their job designations on the work permits. The law is very strict on the issue.
