Robbie Williams - Robbie Williams Can't Drive

Robbie Williams can't drive.

The 37-year-old British singer struggles to get around Los Angeles, where he lives with wife Ayda Field, because he has never passed his driving test.

He said: "I don't have a driver's licence. In London you just don't drive because the traffic is terrible, so you get cabs to go everywhere, which has left me being 37 and still without a driver's licence in Los Angeles."

Although he can't drive, the Take That star - who has teamed up with country music star Bob Paisley to record 'Collision of Worlds' for the forthcoming 'Cars 2' movie - is fascinated by cars and loves watching motor racing on television.

In an interview organised by Disney and posted on Robbie's official website, he said: "We have Formula 1 over in England, and it's always been a very important part of growing up and seeing these heroes and respecting and admiring them and the glamour that surrounds them. It's exciting."

The 'Flood' singer also admitted he thinks of himself as a "steady and reliable" minivan.

Asked what type of car he thinks he is, he said: "I think I'd be a van, to be honest. Nice and comfortable, steady, reliable. I'd like to consider myself like something sporty, but I'm not. So yeah, a minivan with a plasma screen inside, big relaxing chairs and comfort. That would be me."
