This may be hard to believe, but some of your favorite celebs straight-up can’t drive! From Perrie Edwards to Niall Horan and even Ariana Grande, a bunch of stars never got around to taking their driver’s test.
Camila Cabello, for one, couldn’t get behind the wheel for years, but in April 2021, the songstress appeared to start driving lessons. According to photos obtained by the Daily Mail at the time, the brunette beauty was photographed in a red car learning to drive! Over the years, she’s been vocal about her lack of license via social media. “I’m gonna learn how to drive this week and get my license hopefully without fatalities injuries OR destruction of the state of Florida,” she shared via Twitter in 2014. As it turns out, it’s actually taken a few years before she actually went through with her plan!
One person who can legally drive the streets is Olivia Rodrigo! The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star actually got her driver’s license in July 2020, but months later opened up about the experience in a heartfelt breakup song titled, “Drivers License.”
“I got my driver’s license last week / Just like we always talked about / ‘Cause you were so excited for me / To finally drive up to your house,” the talented teen sings on the track. “But today I drove through the suburbs / Crying ’cause you weren’t around.”
Immediately after its release, fans were obsessed with the raw and real lyrics. “I was going through a heartbreak that was so confusing to me, so multifaceted,” Olivia said about the song, according to Just Jared Jr. “Putting all those feelings into a song made everything seem so much simpler and clearer.”
Over the years, tons of celebrities have actually spoken out about their ability, or inability, to drive and J-14 compiled a list of stars who don’t have their driver’s license. As it turns out, some celebs took a while to learn to drive because they just didn’t have the time or didn’t feel the need, while others opted not to get their licenses right away because they were actually terrified of driving. Others took a while because they just couldn’t pass the test, and some still don’t know how to drive! Scroll through our gallery to see all the stars who can’t drive or who got their driver’s licenses late, and find out why they decided to wait.
