Hello. I am an India expat working in Dubai. Can I get the KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) driving license on the basis of my UAE driving license without any driving tests?

Hi there,

Expats can drive in Saudi Arabia on a valid foreign driving licence for up to three months. After this time, you must get a local licence, and likely won't be able to continue driving using your Dubai driver's licence. To get this, your sponsor/employer in Jeddah should help you. Have you looked into other options on getting around? For more info, you can read our guide to Transport and Driving in Saudi Arabia.

Hope this helps.
