How to get an International Driving License in Kuwait?
Since I am traveling to Cyprus this weekend, and I would be hiring a car there, I had to get my International Driving License. Although, your ordinary Kuwait License may work there, but getting an international license in Kuwait is so easy, that one should always get it before traveling.
International driving license is issued by Kuwait International Automobile Club or KT as its more commonly known as. KT has authority to issue both international license and international travel permit for your car, if you are driving out of Kuwait.
To get the license here are the basics:
- You need one photograph
- A copy of your current Kuwait driving license
- An application form, available at KT offices
- Fee of either KD10 [one year], KD 18 [two years], or KD 24 [three years] in cash
You visit one of the KT branches and submit the above. You will get your license within 10-15 minutes
KT branches are located in Shuwaikh, Fahaheel, and Jahra. The one in Shuwiakh is on 4th Ring Road, right opposite Safat Al-Ghanim [automobile showrooms in Rai]. The approach to this branch is through the road just before Sultan Center wholesale division. They are open Sunday to Thursday, 8am – 1pm and 4:30pm – 7pm. Call them on  4832388 / 4832192 for more information
