KUWAIT CITY, March 21: The Farwaniya Traffic Department witnesses overcrowding because of the population density of expatriates in the governorate, especially because of renewal of driving licenses each year and add to this the lack of sufficient staff as observed by the Al-Qabas daily during a tour of the department.
This is the most prominent issue which causes confusion in work delays when it comes to the completion of transactions.
Informed sources told the daily despite the processing of transactions which are determined by coupon number, the renewal of driving licenses each year has ‘confused’ the work and doubled the number of people visiting the department.
During the tour, the daily saw the commitment on the part of the staff to ensure the applications meet the conditions as stipulated in the law and discovered that the department completed about 1,300 transactions of various types and rejected about 400 because they did not meet the conditions.
The sources pointed out that the Department of Driving Licenses work two shifts (morning and evening). As for the services provided to the elderly and people with special needs, the sources explained that the Director of the Department Colonel Khaled Habib has issued clear and explicit instructions to take into account their circumstances and not to make them wait and complete their transactions if they meet all the legal conditions without complications.
