Normally the Saudi driving license fee varies from license to license. In a normal car driving license, the Saudi driving license fee is about SR 40 per year. You can make the payment through your own bank account or through some friend’s bank account. If you have internet access or ATM card, it is as simple as 123.
If you don’t have access to either of two mentioned above, you can give SR 20 in addition to the normal fee and any agent offering SADAD services will pay your Saudi driving license fee.
However, I would strongly recommend you to pay the fee from your own personal account. In case if you want to claim a refund of the Saudi driving license fee, you can do so very easily if you have paid it from your account. It is also important to mention here that the procedure to pay Saudi driving license renewal fee is different.
How to pay Saudi driving license fee in Saudi Arabia?
First of all, login to your internet banking account. I will be using the example of Al Rajhi Bank but the procedure in other banks is also the same. Now click on the tab of payment shown in the middle of the screen.
A drop down list will appear from where you will have to select “Government Services”. Some further options will appear from where you will have to select “Driving License”. You can also take help of the image given below.
A new screen will appear on your computer screen and you will have to select “Payments” in transaction type and “Issue License” in Application Type. At step 3, you will have to enter your Iqama number in front of the Beneficiary ID and “Private” in front of the License Type.
In the third type, you will have to mention the duration for which you want to issue your driving license.
If you want to issue the license for two years, the Saudi driving license fee is SR 80. If you want to issue your driving license for 5 years, the Saudi driving license fee is SR 200 and if you want to issue your driving license for 10 years, the Saudi driving license fee is SR 400.
I personally preferred to issue it for 10 years by paying a fee of SR 400 as you don’t have to go through the activities again and again.
If all the entered details are correct, you will be prompted to the next page where all the details of driving license holder are written. You can check the details and click on the button “confirm”.
Payment will be made from your account. You can also take help of the screenshots attached. After making the payment, get a print of the receipt. You will have to attach it to Saudi Arabia driving license application form.
