Driving License Cancelled When Went For Renewal

I have a question regarding my driving license renewal. I was issued a license on 03/06/2015 and at that time my profession was Accountant and salary KD 492. At the time of application I was told to get a no objection certificate from the Shuwaikh Traffic Department, which I did.

I was also asked to get the signature of the Director of the Jabriya Traffic Department which I did and it was only after that I was issued the license.

Now, recently, when I went for my license renewal the officials took away my license telling me that I did not meet the salary condition even though now my current salary is KD 541. They also fined me KD 5 after few days saying it’s for late renewal.

How is this possible, because they have cancelled my license, for them to fine me KD 5.

Answer: We feel that the Traffic Department is wrong and it can’t impose the conditions for getting a driving license on you unless you initially got the driving license for the following designations and then changed to something else : driver, mandoub (company representative), housewife or student or you got the license illegally.

The Traffic Department is wrong because accountants are among the categories which are exempted from the salary condition.

Before we go on, we would like to first stress on the three requirements to apply for a driving license

1. Must have been on legal residence for at least two years at the time of application

2. Must be a university degree holder

3. Must be getting a salary of at least KD 600 a month.

This amount must be mentioned on the work permit. Even if you are earning more and a lesser salary is mentioned on the work permit your application will not be entertained.

The Traffic Department is wrong to take away your license because you got the license through a waiver for accountants because you did not meet the salary condition and still don’t.

As accountants are not required to meet the salary condition, that is why you were asked to get the NOCs from two departments before you were granted the license.

As such withdrawal of the license doesn’t make sense. So, it is better that you approach a senior officer of the Traffic Department with the NOCs that you got to clarify the situation and get your license.

There is no logical explanation for your license to be taken away. On the issue of you being fined for “late renewal” of the license after it was withdrawn, there is again no logical explanation. You should contact the Traffic Department on this account also.
