Elaf Al-Hazmi has become the first female employee at STC to get her driver’s licence in the Kingdom. Saudi Arabia only began allowing women to drive this month (June 2018). STC Group CEO Nasser Al-Nasser congratulated Al-Hazmi and spoke about the theoretical and practical driver training course that STC has organised for its female employees.

The course includes instructions on driving safety and practical training in car mechanics, as well as the opportunity to experience driving (for driving license holders), and to conduct an educational tour by car accompanied by male and female driving experts.

The aim of the course is to instil a culture of safe driving allowing female employees and visitors to know the rules of traffic, access to driving licenses, training and all that is related to the woman’s driving, in addition to direct dialogue sessions with a group of experts in driving cars.
