The source also stated that many residents circumvent the law to escape deportation, so that they continue to use expired licenses, and are punished with a fine of 5 dinars only when caught driving their vehicles, because they are treated as people who have expired licenses.
The source also clarified that there are about 20,000 driving licenses granted to university students by exception to complete their studies, but most of them finished their studies and did not take the initiative to hand them over, which made the General Traffic Department place a (block) on them for not renewing them.
