It was just some months ago that it was announced women will be allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia and it is only just getting better.

The General Directorate of Traffic announced on Friday that women in Saudi Arabia will now also be allowed to drive trucks and motorcycles.

There will also be STRICT anti-harassment laws that will not tolerate any harassment towards female drivers

Women with international driving licenses will be allowed to drive in the Kingdom without the need to go to local driving schools and those with licenses from Gulf countries can convert these to Saudi licenses.

Women field inspectors will also be recruited and  women will also be employed at different traffic checkpoints.

 Licenses to drive vehicles in private and secured areas are granted at the age of 18 and licenses to drive in public areas and to operate public service vehicles are granted at the age of 20.

The Royal order will come into force on June 24, 2018.
