Then you can create drivers update profile from the Intune portal (https://intune.microsoft.com/) by accessing the Devices\Windows\Driver updates for Windows 10 and later blade
When creating the profile, you can choose to either manually approve the update or let Intune to automatically do it; when letting Intune to approve the drivers you have to set a number of days before the updates are available (you can start from 0 day to make it immediately available)
