A group of Saudi women received their driving licenses on Monday by replacing their recognized international driving licenses with Saudi ones.
Saudi women will be allowed to start driving in the kingdom from June 24.
The General Department of Traffic had said that women wishing to replace their international driving licenses with Saudi ones can submit an application online and later undergo a test to be given a license accordingly.
People voiced their joy on social media as many posted photos of the newly-issued women’s driving licenses.
