I don't even see the numberplate on bikes in Saudia so how could it required a license to ride it. Don't worry if you have car driving license so its enough.

i am afraid not. you need separate license for riding bike.
and get your bike registered too. As brother (Nommi Gill) said, yes most of the people don't even get their bikes registered but if you get caught you may face charges . SAR 3000 for riding unregistered bike, secondly stolen if you don't have the original invoice of the purchase.

So its not as simple as it looks. infact getting a license and getting a bike registered isn't a problem. just a simple procedures..

There isn't much information on this topic the same way when I looked around as well. You need a separate motorcycle license to ride a motorcycle which has an engine capacity above 80 - 100cc. I had to get one myself for my bike even though I had a car license. You need a motorcycle license to register the bike under your name and get the ishtimara in your name.

If in Riyadh, you can get car license from both Dallah driving schools but motorcycle license you can receive only from Dallah, North Riyadh(Takasussi?). I remember reading some useful information regadring the process for the same in one of the forums, please check for that since the procedures aren't as simple as they are for car license.

Btw if you're asking about scooters, if below 80 - 100cc, I don't think you need license nor do you need registration, Just ride safe, follow traffic rules.

Those are illegals on the road, If involved in a wreck, all fault will be of the person riding them !!

Good morning

Any driving schools in Jubail which are reliable to assist with obtaining with my drivers licence?

Thank you very much!

Can a relative or husband's wife sit on the bike with him?

As far as I know the car license is different than the motor license.
