What is a Vehicle Repair Permit?

If you get in an accident in Saudi Arabia, you must report the accident to the traffic authorities of KSA. Once the traffic authorities verify that you have not been involved in any criminal activity, you can get a Vehicle repair permit issued to get your damaged auto serviced.

No mechanic will service your car without a vehicle repair permit since it is illegal in KSA to do so. This permit excludes you from suspicion of any involvement in a hit and run case or other criminal activities.
