Women driving

Q: A friend has requested me to assist in getting a driving school to teach his wife. I told him it is not permissible for strange men to teach strange women. He agreed but said can you get a woman driver for her to teach her driving. Now am I allowed to search a woman driver to teach his wife? I believe women are not allowed to drive in Shari’a.
