Plan to implement online renewal of driving licence
Traffic department is planning to implement a project to renew driving licenses online, where the applicant applies on the interior ministry website and submits the required documents, then receives the license from machines similar to civil IDs.
This was disclosed by Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs, at the Ministry of Interior Major-General Fahd Al-Shuwea.
He also said that talks are on to reduce the requirements for obtaining driving licenses for expatriates born in Kuwait.
Al-Shuwea also said the aim of toughening traffic penalties for violations is not to burden the violators, but to restore discipline and reduce the rates of death and injury.
