In a bid to alleviate the escalating issue of traffic congestion on Kuwait's roads, authorities are gearing up to evaluate the driving licenses of all expatriates residing in the country. Local Arabic news outlet, Al Jarida, reports that this initiative aims to revoke nearly 300,000 driving licenses held by expats.
Top-level officials have issued stringent guidelines for the revocation of driving licenses for expatriates who do not possess a university degree and earn less than 600 KD per month. This measure is expected to significantly reduce the number of vehicles on the roads, thereby easing traffic jams and streamlining transportation in Kuwait.
As the country grapples with the challenges posed by increasing traffic, this proactive step to reassess expatriate driving licenses demonstrates the government's commitment to finding viable solutions for maintaining smooth road transportation. It remains to be seen how this decision will impact the expat community and the overall transportation system in Kuwait.
