We often receive emails from Indian readers asking the same question, “Can I drive in Saudi Arabia with an Indian license?”
If you have a valid international driving license or a driving license from your home country, you are allowed to drive on Saudi roads for up to three months. After that, your IDP as well as any other license from a country other than the USA would be illegal in Saudi Arabia.
Although it is legal to drive in Saudi Arabia with an IDL. If the police stop you, you might have a difficult time explaining this to them. In KSA, I don’t recommend driving with an Indian driving license.
