In a new interview Olivia Rodrigo revealed that even though her song "Drivers License" is still No. 1 on the Billboard singles charts, the magic number it took for her to get her actual driver's permit was much higher. The 18-year-old star of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series whose breakthrough hit just added an eighth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, dialed in to PopCrush Nights to tell the hilarious story of her struggle to get her actual license.
“Essentially, the time I got my driver's license it was my fourth try, which is really sad,” Rodrigo told the show's hosts. You see, the first two times she was slated to take her driving exam she had to cancel, first due to COVID-19 and then because of a scheduling conflict with the filming schedule of HSM. Her third try was not much better, honestly. "I finally get there and I fly out from Utah to L.A. just to take the test because I had to take it in California," she said. "I'm sitting in the car and the guy like comes by and he's checking [everything]."
