Women in Saudi Arabia are all gearing up for June 24, when they will hit the road for the first time in a generation. Currently, five driving schools for females have been established in cooperation with women’s universities in Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Madinah and Tabuk and a number of applications have been submitted to open additional driving schools around the country. It is no secret that many women in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia hold driving licenses from abroad.
Those who want to get a Saudi license can do so at 21 sites set up to facilitate the replacement process.
