KUWAIT CITY, June 24: In the Hawalli, Farwaniya, and Mubarak Al-Kabeer governorates, persons undergoing driving tests have raised concerns and appealed to the General Traffic Department regarding the lack of adequate protection from the sun while waiting in open courtyards, reports Al-Jarida daily. With temperatures soaring, candidates have requested the authorities to build sheds to shield them from the intense sunlight during their test sessions.

Driving test candidates wait for their turn under the scorching heat.

According to the daily, candidates have expressed their frustration with the current conditions, highlighting the daily discomfort they endure under the scorching sun as they wait for their turn for driving test. These areas, managed by driving education companies, were expected to provide suitable accommodations considering the fees paid by candidates for renting vehicles to undertake the tests or for the option to use their parents’ vehicles for the examination.

The situation underscores a perceived gap in the administration’s responsiveness to the needs of candidates, especially amid ongoing advancements in technology and infrastructure development within the traffic and operations sector. Despite discussions about technological advancements and modernization initiatives, practical improvements in testing facilities and procedures have not kept pace with the evolving road infrastructure across the country. The appeal for umbrellas refl ects broader concerns about the adequacy of facilities and services provided during driving tests, highlighting the need for enhanced measures to ensure candidate comfort and safety amidst climatic challenges.
