Daniel Craig takes driving lessons


Actor Daniel Craig has privately undertaken a series of driving classes in order to obtain a licence in New York State. The 44-year-old, who drives a vintage Aston Martin DB5 car in the new James Bond movie Skyfall, successfully completed a written test before going for a five-hour classroom-based driving safety course in September, reports contactmusic.com. Richard Fernandez, an office manager at the Professional Driving School of the Americas in Manhattan, said: “His assistant requested a special class for Daniel by himself. No other students were there. He was such a nice dude, so friendly.” The course involved videos and lectures on proper turns, driving in extreme weather conditions, parallel parking and three-point turns, and the dangers of alcohol and driving.
