MoI starts ‘e-driving’ licence system, installs 100 cameras

Posted on : Thursday 31st of May 2018

KUWAIT CITY : The Ministry of Interior (MoI) launched on Wednesday an e-driving licence system and installed 100 traffic cameras in accordance with the stateof- the-art technology. The ministry also set up 20 digital direction boards to serve surveillance and follow-up on roads and intersections, the Ministry’s Public Relations and Security Media Department said in a statement following a visit made by Undersecretary Lieutenant General Mahmoud Al-Dosari to the operation room.

According to the statement, Al-Dosari launched the new system, which will help users log in to the e-gate and open an account to pay traffic fines and renew driving licence through filling in an electronic form. The form and content of the new driving licence will be changed to be more secured and developed, head of specialized training center at the Ministry’s traffic sector Colonel Salem Al-Ajmi said. He added that data of motorists in the new system would include information in several languages to use the new licence outside Kuwait.

The new electronic driving licence is compatible with the standards of the international certificate “ISO”, he said, noting that this will enable motorists to use the new driving licence in most countries, which implement the same system. Al-Dosari also launched 100 cameras to help monitor and follow up traffic and register violations committed by drivers on roads and intersections, the statement pointed out. Al-Dosari was briefed on some mobile cameras powered by solar energy that can be moved to several sites in order to support the fixed cameras, it made clear. Adding such cameras and guidelines’ screens will help the central control room follow up traffic congestion and deal efficiently with light signals as well as register violations, Yousef Al-Khoda, head of operations department, said.
