Saudi Arabian women will be allowed to drive trucks when the ban on women drivers is officially lifted in June 2018.

Women must be at least 18 years old to be eligible for a license to drive private cars, and must be at least 20 years old to receive a license for public transport and public work vehicles, according to Arab News

Additionally, Saudi women will also be allowed to drive motorcycles, officials announced three months after the kingdom announced the lift on the ban, according to Wheels24

Women involved in accidents or commit traffic violations will be handled at special centers that will be established and run by women, according to Wheels24.

Before lifting the ban, Saudi Arabia was the only country in the world that did not permit female drivers, according to Metro
