Saudi Arabia King has issued a decree that allows Saudi women to drive.

Saudi Press Agency confirmed that King Salman of Saudi Arabia has issued a decree that allows Saudi women to have their own driving licences, which means Saudi women are no longer forbidden to drive in the country.

Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that has forbidden women from driving. Rights groups have campaigned for years in order to allow women in Saudi Arabia to drive. Some Saudi women have been fined and imprisoned for daring to get behind the wheel.

“The royal decree will implement the provisions of traffic regulations, including the issuance of driving licences for men and women alike,” the report said.

The decree has ordered that a ministerial body be set up to give advice within 30 days and that the order will be implemented by June 2018, according to the Saudi Press Agency.
