The reference number is the 9-digit number that is found on your (old) iqama stamps located in the middle of the page, on the left hand side, immediately above your name.
Hope this helps.
God bless!

Is there a way renew a damaged driving license, online?

Monday, November 18, 2019
Getting the License renewed at the Traffic department used to be a day long or sometimes even longer affair. In addition, getting yelled by Kuwaitis, form the lines 4 hours before to get the token and pleading to get the signatures, was no fun. Thanks for making this process easier now.

Monday, November 18, 2019
That''s big step.

Wow amazing. Kuwait is getting on the technology wagon, which is great. This was one of the most difficult and troublesome process, to get the Driving License renewed.
