New Measure To Curb Driving License Fraud In Kuwait

26 July 2023 Driving License

With the decision of First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Sheikh Talal Al-Khalid, the Kuwait Society for Traffic Safety's head, Bader Al-Matar, lauds a significant step towards fraud detection and prevention. The decision entails approving driver’s licenses and vehicle registrations through the “My Identity” application for all transactions.

Al-Matar reports that Kuwait has experienced a staggering rise in the number of driving licenses issued, which has adversely affected traffic conditions. He emphasized that official statistics reveal an alarming increase in the issuance of driving licenses, with some recipients not genuinely deserving or needing them.

This ministerial decision will curb the unwarranted growth of driving licenses and address the imbalance between citizens and expatriates. Al-Matar believes that the move will lead to a reduction in traffic congestion and promote road safety.

Furthermore, he stressed the importance of continuous campaigns conducted by the Ministry of Interior, particularly the General Traffic Department, to prosecute those who continue to drive after their licenses have been revoked. Al-Matar pointed out that there are over one and a half million driving licenses that do not align with the country’s population, emphasizing the need for corrective measures.

In achieving a more balanced and responsible approach to issuing driving licenses, the implementation of this procedure contributes to enhanced traffic management and road safety in Kuwait.
