KUWAIT CITY, Oct 22: The General Directorate of Traffic revealed that about 3,000 expat driving licenses were revoked in the first week due to violation of conditions on which they were granted. This decision comes on the instructions of the First Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Al Khaled to reopen expat drivers license files.
3,000 Expats driving licenses were blocked and were listed to be withdrawn. The licenses which have been withdrawn are due to change in work permit or they transferred the residence to another field of work hence they have lost one of the conditions either based on work profession or salary.
Reviewing all the licenses will take about two months at least, if conditions are not met the licenses will be blocked and the owner will be summoned. If the person doesn’t hand over the license it will be blocked through Kuwait Mobile ID and Sahel application, reports Al Rai. In the event it is detected that he is still driving the vehicle despite the driving license has been revoked he will be dealt according the law and will be deported from Kuwait for not complying with the laws
