Earlier, the Traffic Department in Saudi Arabia began replacing the international licenses approved in the Kingdom for women with Saudi licenses in preparation for the specific date for allowing women to drive on June 24, according to the Saudi Press Agency, "SPA".

After verifying the validity of the license presented through the "Saudi Driving License Portal" and assessing the ability of those who wish to exchange it to drive through a practical test, the first group of the two women received Saudi driving licenses, and expressed their joy and pleasure in obtaining the license.

This comes as part of a series of measures taken by the General Traffic Department in preparation for implementing the decision to allow women to drive cars this month.

The General Traffic Department has announced an important advantage that will be available to Saudi women who wish to obtain driver's licenses if the conditions apply to them, as women who have a driver’s license from countries whose driving licenses are recognized will be granted a Saudi license immediately.
