Default Get driving licence for female in Bahrain (KSA resident)

Is it possible for a female to reside in KSA and gradually obtain a car driving licence in Bahrain via a driving course/test?

British? and if so do they have a full UK license?

If you have a UK Licence you can rent a car in Bahrain, if you do not I would imagine you would have to be a Resident to enable you to take driving lessons and ultimately a test to obtain a Bahrain License

If you have a British driving license you can rent in Bahrain.

As a man, you can even, with some companies, get (paid) permission to drive it into Saudi (if you pay for additional Saudi insurance)

Yes, British lady - just trying to get FIRST driving licence.
UK means expensive & spending lots of time there.

I'd say if you don't have a Bahrain residency you won't have a chance of getting a licence.

actually, Bahrain also "means expensive & spending lots of time there" as it isn't cheap to hire driving instructors and there is a very long waiting list for instructors which is legendary.

Without a full license at all, I doubt she will qualify. However, it might be useful to post here

Bahrain forum, forum expat Bahrain

for more specialised knowledge on whether what you are attempting to do would be possible.
