The Wanted star Max George is facing a long wait to become a qualified motorist after failing his driving test.

The 24-year-old British singer is currently learning to drive and recently took his test in a bid to win his licence, but he flunked the exam and now has to wait before he can hit the road.

He tells British radio station Key 103, "I attempted to go through a red light and I nearly failed the eye test, too. I couldn't even read the number plate."
