DAMMAM — The overly crowded driving schools for women caused a new black market to emerge with places for training costing up to SR10,000, Al-Watan newspaper reported.

Head of the Sataqoudi Association Fatima Al-Mohsen said she founded the association to teach women driving.

“I began hearing women complain about the high costs of learning how to drive. I was shocked to learn that there are women who got their driving license from outside the Kingdom and came back to offer their services as driving instructors,” said Al-Mohsen.
