London, Nov 22 (IANS) Actor Daniel Craig has privately undertaken a series of driving classes in order to obtain a licence in New York State.
The 44−year−old, who drives a vintage Aston Martin DB5 car in new James Bond movie "Skyfall", successfully completed a written test before going for a five−hour classroom−based driving safety course in September, reports contactmusic.com.
Richard Fernandez, an office manager at the Professional Driving School of the Americas in Manhattan, said: "His assistant requested a special class for Daniel by himself. No other students were there. He was such a nice dude, so friendly."
The course involved videos and lectures on proper turns, driving in extreme weather conditions, parallel parking and three−point turns, and the dangers of alcohol and driving.
