In many countries, women take for granted their opportunities to obtain their driving licenses. It has become a rite of passage once the permitted age for driving has been reached, usually in the late teen years. Of course, many may not choose, need or medically be able to want to drive.
Today there are countries where women are forbidden to drive or it is frowned upon . In India and Saudi Arabia, women are slowly being encouraged to drive with driver training courses. This is especially advantageous to opening up, not only lifestyle independence but avenues for their employment.
