Saudi Driving School trains 5,000 women

JEDDAH, June 28, 2018

The Saudi Driving School has trained about 5,000 women in partnership with Princess Nourah University (PNU), the school’s CEO Abdul Baset Al-Suwaidi was quoted as saying in a media report.

“After passing a written test, trainees spend two hours in a simulation lab before they begin the first six-hour practical training phase,” he added, according to a report in Arab News.

A trainee must pass the first phase of practical training to be able to move on to the second phase, which includes 14 hours of training, he explained.

“After that, a trainee must pass the road test, in which she learns 18 key driving skills,” said Al-Suwaidi. “Once she passes this test, a trainee is ready to hit the road.”

If a trainee fails the road test, she will have to undergo four hours of the second phase’s practical training, he added.
