Saudi Arabia issues its first driver’s licenses to women

Saudi Arabia’s controversial ban on women drivers will lift on June 24, and 10 women have already picked their licenses up.

According to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), women holding kingdom-approved international licenses Monday started trading them in for national ones from the General Traffic Directorate (GDT).

Arab News shared a video of one of the first licenses issued in Riyadh, in which a woman receives her Saudi license from GDT officials.

According to Aljazeera, the Ministry of Information estimates that approximately 2,000 licenses will be issued to women drivers next week.
