As part of the kingdom's careful public relations campaign to improve the country's image, the Saudi Information Ministry released photos and videos of the women who were lucky enough to receive their licenses on Monday at Riyadh's General Department of Traffic.
Previous reports in state-backed media branded some of the detainees traitors and "agents of embassies".
Ten Saudi women have so far been issued driving licenses, with internationally recognized driving licenses being swapped with Saudi ones.
King Salman issued a royal decree in September lifting the ban on women driving in the country.
However, the government's steps to lift the driving ban for women comes a week after Saudi Arabia arrested several women who campaigned for the right to drive as well as campaigned against the country's male guardianship system.
The tweet containing the video included the caption, "Thousands of congratulations to the daughters of the homeland, being issued the first license in Saudi Arabia", Arab News reported.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has finally moved to correct one of the basic rights that its women were deprived of - the right to drive. But what should have been a landmark moment for the kingdom was overshadowed by the recent arrests of women who had campaigned for the right to drive there.
Often, police would detain a female driver until a male relative could pick her up and sign a pledge on her behalf that she would not drive again. Saudi women had also been banned from voting until 2015, when they were allowed to vote in local elections.
Earlier this month, Saudi authorities announced the date women would be able to drive in the kingdom - valid licence permitting.
Rema Jawdat, a risk analyst, also said in the statement, "Driving, to me, represents having a choice; the choice of independent movement, now we have that option and that's important". "Mohammed bin Salman has been promoting changes, like the decision to allow women to drive, all while risking backlash from clerics and others who adhere to the ultraconservative Wahhabi interpretation of Islam", AP added.
Kingdom says it continues to hold nine others as rights groups condemn the arrests and call for the activists' release.
"ALQAST insists communication is a basic right of civil society, and the authorities are trying to criminalise human rights work", the statement said.
