Licence to drive - Daniel Craig passes his NY test
He may already have a licence to thrill, but actor Daniel Craig had to apply for a licence to drive in New York just like anyone else who moves to the state.
Craig passed his U.S. driving test on his first attempt on Staten Island just a month before the opening of "Skyfall". According to press reports, Craig opted to get his New York driving licence because he spends much of his time living in New York City with wife Rachel Weisz.
His five-hour 'responsible driving course' without a hitch.
According to the New York Post, the only concession made to the 007 star was that officials allowed him to take the classroom test on his own for fear his presence would be put off other licence hopefuls.
A spokesman for the Professional Driving School of America in New York said: âHis assistant requested a special class for Daniel himself. No other students were there. He was such a nice dude, so friendly.â
All non-U.S. citizens are required to complete a written test, a five-hour safety course and the short driving test before qualifying for a licence.
Craigâs classroom work would have included watching videos and lectures on how to execute correct turns, driving in extreme weather and also the dangers of drink-driving.
His licence will be valid for 10 years.
