Insiders have confirmed that the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, through the Department of the Technical Apparatus for Supervising Goods and Determining Their Prices in the Commercial Control and Consumer Protection Sector, is actively working towards issuing a ministerial decision to regulate fees for driving training hours at car education companies in Kuwait. This collaborative effort involves coordination with the Ministry of Interior, specifically the General Administration of Driving Education in Hawalli Governorate.
The need for this ministerial decision arises from a considerable disparity in prices set by various driving education companies providing services to the public. Recognizing this challenge, the Ministry aims to regulate and establish standardized prices for car education hours. The decision is set to encompass education for private, public, and construction cars, as well as motorized bicycles.
Sources disclosed that a crucial meeting convened on Sunday, November 19, involving key figures such as Faisal Al-Ansari, Director of the Technical Staff Department overseeing goods and pricing, a representative from the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Brigadier General Hamoud Al-Roudhan, Director of the General Administration for Driving Education in Hawalli Governorate, and Colonel Muhammad Dulahi Al-Hajri, Head of the Education Schools and Offices Department. Captain Saad Al-Rashidi, an officer in the Education Department, was also present. A detailed report on the discussions will be submitted to Ministry of Commerce and Industry officials, paving the way for legal measures in preparation for the issuance of the ministerial decision. This decision aims to address the significant and noticeable increase in prices for driving education hours observed in recent times.
