Validity of driving license – changed visa from 17 to visa 22

I had renewed my licence for two years as per my residency (visa 17) in 2017 when I was working as a computer Eng. I then shifted to a dependent visa 22 (under my father) at the end of December 2017. I would like to know if I am permitted to drive using my licence that is valid till 2019 even though I am on visa 22.

Name withheld

Answer: While it is possible for someone on dependent visa 22 with the designation ‘housewife’ or ‘student’ to be issued a driving licence and since you do not fall under these two categories, we are afraid that your licence will be invalid after your change of visa 17 to visa 22.
