Driving licenses of most dependents to be revoked

KUWAIT: All traffic departments in Kuwait’s six governorates are no longer authorized to renew driving licenses of holders of dependent visas (article 22), especially those issued after 2014. All such licenses should be sent to the interior ministry’s assistant undersecretary for traffic affairs, whose office will make sure that they were obtained according to the rules, which includes that the husband of the license holder meets all conditions, most importantly to be a general manager, assistant general manager, advisor or work in exempted professions that allows spouses to get a license. The source said all article 22 licenses issued with exemptions will be revoked by the assistant undersecretary’s office.
