Daniel Craig - 007 Gets His New York Driver's License - Well Done Daniel Craig, You've Passed!

If we say the words ‘Daniel Craig, driving in New York,’ presumably you have an image of the rugged Brit flipping an Aston Martin off the Brooklyn Bridge, escaping unharmed and swimming to safety, having rescued a drowning Bond girl. Right? Right! Well, have WE got a news story for you!

OK. It’s not quite as dramatic as it might first appear. It definitely does involve Daniel Craig driving in New York but it also involves a five hour road safety lesson, a written test and a road test. That’s right folks, this is the news that the James Bond star Daniel Craig is now legally allowed to drive in New York. Craig lives in Manhattan with his wife Rachel Weisz and has clearly decided that he’d like a little slice of independent mobility in the city and has found time in his busy schedule to take the city’s pre-licencing driving safety course to make sure he’s fit to drive the New York streets.

Richard Fernandez of the Professional Driving School of the Americas, insisted “no one is exempt, regardless of who you are,” thus confirming that a license to kill does not apply to the rules of the road, it would seem. Our 007 is going to have to remember to stay out of character when he hits the Big Apple’s highways, though. He seems to spend a lot of time turning Aston Martins onto their rooftops. An enviable skill, for sure, but probably not welcome in rush-hour traffic.
