British rocker Noel Gallagher is finally learning to drive but plans to purposely fail his test so he won't have to transport his children around.

The former Oasis star, 45, took up lessons after his wife Sara insisted he share some of the family's driving duties by taking their two sons Donovan, five, and Sonny, two, to soccer games.

However, Gallagher fears he won't be a good driver so he is hoping to fail his test.

He tells British Tv host Alan Carr, "My lovely wife is insisting I take driving lessons. She said, 'Who is going to take the boys to the football? (soccer)' And I am like, 'Well you are.'

"But I have sussed it (worked it out), you see. If I ever qualify for a test I will deliberately fail. I would rather be in the passenger seat. I would crash a lot of cars. I have had 40-odd years looking out of the window."
