A security source denied rumors which have been published on the social media that the General Traffic Department has stopped issuing and renewing driving licences of expatriates, reports Arab Times daily.
The same source said the rumors are baseless. The source noted the Directorate-General of Traffic is committed to implementing the ministerial decision concerning the issue of driving licences.
The GTD, the source said, continues to renew the licences or expatriates, but withdraws the licences those which were issued in 2014 if the holder does not use the licence for the purpose it was issued for.
For example, if the license was issued for a driver’s designation and the holder has changed the profession that does not entitle him to hold a licence, it will be withdrawn.
