Driving License

Over 40,000 Driving Licences Issued to Women

More than 40,000 women have got their licenses since the ban on women driving was lifted on last June 24.

The Director-General of Traffic Department Major-General  Muhammad Al-Bassami who provided the statistics also unveiled plans to open 14 additional driving schools for women in different regions, reported Okaz.

This is being done to ease the waiting list for women to get the license.

The traffic authorities have so far opened twenty centers to replace valid international licenses with Saudi ones as per the new regulations.
