NEW YORK – Britain is to allow female drivers to drive for the first time in more than 40 years following a landmark court ruling.
The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom ruled Monday that a woman can drive for two years without being required to pass a driving test.
It overturned a lower court ruling in February that said the law was discriminatory against women.
The ruling means that Britain will allow women who were not licensed drivers in the 1970s to drive.
It also means women will be allowed to drive if they are licensed in the United States and other European countries.
