Saudi Arabia Driving License
 
 
 

You can drive in Saudi on an International Driving License and some national licenses for up to three months, after this you need a Saudi license. Some licences, including those from the UK and US, are convertible to a Saudi licence without a driving test.

The application procedure for a Saudi driving licence is as follows:

Obtain a translation of your Driving License. This is not the same as the attestation before, but merely the “Driving License Office” (DLO) translation for them to “certify” it is fine.

Obtain a green hanging file folder (yes, this is essential!). Without this your application will fail! Into this, insert your translation, a further company letter, a copy of you license, a copy of your Iqama and the ubiquitous application form.

Take this to the DLO and take a blood test – this is marked on your license, and an eye test - both these tests will get you a stamp on the form to say they are completed. If the application is successful, pay your fee and collect your license.

Women are not allowed to drive cars in Saudi Arabia, and a woman can only travel by car if accompanied by her husband, male relative or male driver

NOTE 1: YOU CANNOT GET YOUR PERMANENT DRIVING LICENSE WITHOUT YOUR IQAMA.

NOTE 2: YOU CANNOT (OFFICIALLY) OWN A 4X4 VEHICLE WITHOUT A FAMILY IQAMA (But, there are ways around everything!)
