Regrade...
 
You will need to get some topsoil and plant more grass. I would live with it...the rains we get this time of year ussually subside after a while.

Just think, in another 10 years you will be collecting that water in a big tank in the yard to survive.:D Save the time for something else.

keep in mind that if you add top soil it might make the water deeper in your drive way. no one likes wet feet.
