Women will also be able to drive in Saudi Arabia from June 24.
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that so far women were not allowed to drive, but now even the change has begun. The result of this is that this conservative country has decided to allow women to drive from June 24. Director General General of traffic Mohammad al-Basmi said on Tuesday this information.
In the official statement, Basmati said that all necessary requirements have been met for carrying women in the country. In September, 2017, in the imperial order, the announcement was made to end the decades-old ban on women’s driving. Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where women are barred from driving.
Basmi said that women of the age of 18 years or more will be allowed to apply for a driving license. Driving schools have been set up in five cities of the country and women from Saudi Arabia, who receive driving licenses abroad, will be trained in these schools. Women who obtain driving licenses from abroad can also apply for a license from a separate process. In this, their driving skills will be tested.
