The historic Royal Decree to allow Saudi women to drive was issued on Tuesday 06/01/1439 AH corresponding to 26/09/2017 AD. In support of this wise decision, and as a contribution from Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University to serve the women of this country, the University initiated the establishment of the first driving school for women in Riyadh region. The University was keen to provide the highest levels of education and training for the women of the country to initiate their experience with driving with high confidence and professional excellence.
The Saudi Driving School is the first school to train women to safe driving in the Riyadh region. It was established in partnership with the Emirates Driving Institute in Dubai, which is an experience house for driving in the region.
