Saudi Arabia has finally brought an end to its ban on women drivers as scores get behind the wheel in celebration.

The government allowed women to drive from June 24 after a royal decree announced an end to the ban last September.

Driving schools for women have been set up and female driving instructors who obtained licences abroad will be offered teaching positions, according to the Khalee Times.

As the clock struck midnight in the country, scores of women were seen getting behind the wheel for the first time ever.

Earlier this week Saudi female racer, Aseel Al Hamad was pictured marking its end with a special drive in a Jaguar F-TYPE on June 21.

The move places Saudi women at the centre of a major transformation being spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
