Default Saudi international car driving licence

Just wondering how easy it is to get one. (Got normal one already).
From a govt office in Dammam?


Can it be used in most countries?

There should be some some sort of authority that can issue an international licence ( not usable locally ) and, as long as you have a resident's permit, most countries will accept it.

So, the normal car license won't work abroad? I thought it did....

You can use your Saudi license in all GCC countries no problem.

You might find a lot of Fursan travel shops can do it for you, which will cut out the waiting. A friend of mine got his for 400.

I got mine through Al FIFA for SAR 100. Worked fine in Europe.

I have used both Saudi and Libyan standard driving licences to rent cars in the UK - major rental concerns such as Hertz and Avis. Never a problem from the 1980s onwards.
