Daniel Craig is now licensed to drive

British actor Daniel Craig, famous for his role as 007 in the last three James Bond films, can now get behind the wheel of that Aston Martin legally in America.

"Skyfall" star Daniel Craig, aka James Bond, is licensed to drive in the United States after passing his driver's test.

The British actor has taken driving lessons and a classroom-based course in order to obtain a driver's license 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 before taking his practical test on Staten Island, which he passed with flying colors.

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."
