The British actor has taken driving lessons and a classroom-based course in order to obtain a motorist's licence for New York State, where he lives with his wife Rachel Weisz.
He was given special solo lessons at the Professional Driving School of the Americas in Manhattan in September (12) before taking his practical test on Staten Island, which he passed with flying colours.
Richard Fernandez, office manager at the driving school, tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "His assistant requested a special class for Daniel by himself. No other students were there. He was such a nice dude, so friendly."
