The Traffic Department has also mentioned, however, that there are several conditions for a young woman to obtain a temporary driving permit. They include reaching the age of 17 years, six photographs, and a medical checkup.

Those interested must submit an application at the driving school to be issued a vehicle-driving permit at the age of 17 whose validity is for one year.

Women (and men) who have turned 18 can request to replace their driving permit with a driving license, whose validity is for 5 years or 10 years.
