Requirements for a Driver’s License in Saudi Arabia

Posted by:

If you are an expat working or living for good in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, you maybe looking on how to process some documents needed as a resident. One of these is having a driver’s license, which is a very important document especially if you decided on driving around the kingdom.

Obtaining a driver’s license in Saudi is not easy. So before you head on to a driving school to process your papers, you might want to prepare first all the documents you’ll need. This is to avoid any hassle you may encounter during the application period for your driver’s license in Saudi.

Here are the list of documents you have to prepare for the application of your driver’s license before you go to a driving school.

1. Original and photocopy of your Iqama. Expats know that they should carry their Iqama at all times. And this is a primary document needed to process a driver’s license. Have this photocopied to be presented to the license office.

2. Photocopy of your Passport. Have your passport photocopied, that is the part with your passport number, photo image and details, and the visa entry.

3. Your driver’s license from your country. This is another important document needed. This will attest if you really do know how to drive and you are permitted from your country of origin to do so.

4. Translation of your driver’s license into Arabic language from an approved translation institution. You should have your driver’s license from your country of origin be translated into Arabic for the license officer to understand its content.

5. Four pieces of passport size photo with white background.

6. Medical report. This is your blood group test and eye test, which you can get from any medical center or hospital.

7. License Fee. The driver’s license fee is 400 SAR, which you’ll have to pay in a bank or atm. Keep the voucher as proof of your payment to be presented also to the license officer.

 
These are the requirements you have to prepare if you are to apply for a driver’s license in Saudi Arabia. Aside from the license fee, it is advisable that you also prepare about 200 SAR more for the other fees you have to pay. You should also come to the driving school as early as 7am to process your application. Be prepared to give a day for the whole processing time of your driver’s license in Saudi Arabia. But it is worth the time because the driver’s license is valid for 10 years after you’ve received it.
