Saudi Arabia to open 1st female-only driver school after historic royal decree

Less than a week after Saudi Arabia’s King Salman issued a royal decree allowing women to drive, a university in the gulf state is set to open a driving school for the kingdom’s newly liberated motorists.

The Princess Nourah University, an all-female college in the capital Riyadh, announced its plans for the new driving course on Saturday – the first in the country.
