Here's the Kuwait government's website it tells you about all the procedures step by step.


Have a nice day.

Thanks. In the mean time I have done it. That link does not say you need to go to Amghara, where they send you to Mubarak Al Kabeer traffic department where they inform you to go to Jabriya traffic department even though I am living in Ahmadi. Usual stuff really. :)

Thanks riba for the comments.

Well just for anyone reading and since mark closed, the post..well

I got a crane or wrenge guy and discussed the matter
and we went of in the morning 8...am to pick the car
and headed to the salmi desert area since he said
lets go and see better than nothing.. 40 kms and
the heat we got there and showed the car to a
couple of scrap guys and closed a deal on one
who said he will help with the canceling .

Basically they submit the application
to scrap  or surrender the number plate (form)
along with copy of car registration
and civil id copy. along with a paper
that u you are giving for scrap from the
guy taking it.Once its
done in amgra station. and they check
n confirm and get the papers done

Those papers need to be submitted
to your governate traffic dept.Say if
you are in salmiya you go to the new
building that opened up in opp mubrak
and you show the paper and get in
and submit the paper and the sign it
and take it and then wait unit
the officers at the left section call
your name and ask you to submit
the numberplate and give you a
cancel paper. you can give the paper
to the scrap guys since they need it
to scrap your car.
