Women in Saudi Arabia will be able to drive cabs and become taxi drivers after the General Directorate of Traffic (Moroor) announced the addition of a general taxi license for women to its list of driving schools.

This move comes less than four years after Saudi Arabia’s landmark decision to allow women to drive. The cost of applying for a license in the Kingdom is 200 Saudi Riyals, according to the traffic department.

Saudi Moroor said in a statement that women can apply for a general taxi license at any of the company’s 18 driving schools around the kingdom, including Riyadh, Jeddah, Eastern Province, Asir, Jazan, Najran, Al-Jouf, Hail, and Taif.
