London: Hollywood actress Carey Mulligan has no confidence in her driving skills and was "terrified" when she was forced to finally obtain her licence for new film `Never Let Me Go`.

The 25-year-old admits she never had an interest in getting behind the wheel, and was gripped with fear when she learned a scene in the thriller called for her to drive a car, reports a news website.

"I got it (driving licence) in Los Angeles finally because, I have to drive in the movie and our director Mark Romanek wanted me to drive a manual car, a stick," said Mulligan.

"I never wanted to learn how to drive. I lived in Germany and London where you don`t need to drive," she added.

She eventually faced her fear on the shoot, but admits the anxiety was high after she failed her first driving test.
