A month before 'Skyfall' was released, Daniel Craig completed a course on "responsible safe driving" to obtain a New York license, it has been revealed.
"No one is exempt, regardless of who you are," the New York Post quoted Richard Fernandez, an office manager at the Professional Driving School of the Americas on East 23rd Street in Manhattan as saying.
According to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles Web site, foreigners must pass a written test, complete a five-hour prelicensing driving-safety course and pass a road test in order to qualify for a driver's license.
After passing the written test, British star Craig went to the 23rd Street school to take the five-hour classroom-based lesson — which he attended on September 13, the school confirmed.
"His assistant requested a special class for Daniel by himself. No other students were there," Fernandez said.
"He was such a nice dude, so friendly," he said.
Craig took the classroom course, which included videos and lectures on proper turns, driving in extreme weather conditions, the danger of alcohol and driving, and parallel parking and three-point turns.
The rugged actor received a certificate of completion of the course and made an appointment to take his behind-the-wheel test on Staten Island.
