Ozzy Osbourne gives up driving despite 30-year battle to pass his test - because he's scared of being SUED

Recommended Posts


Ozzy Osbourne has given up driving despite a 30-year battle to pass his test.

The rocker, 69, hung up his keys after a minor prang in a Ferrari – because he’s terrified of accident lawsuits.

Son Jack revealed: “He had a little bumper kiss on the freeway with someone and he was like ‘you know, I don’t want to drive any more’. He was already driving less and less. I think he is of that mindset he’d rather not have the responsibility.

“Think about it – Ozzy bumps someone and it is like next thing you know we are going to sue for a billion – because people are silly.

“His thing was more like ‘I don’t want to be liable, that’s it’.” The Black Sabbath star only got his license in 2009, 30 years after falling asleep during a test.

He put further failures down to his debauched lifestyle – “I took so many ****ing driving tests because I was so out of it.

“The time I fell asleep, when I woke up there was a note on the seat saying, ‘You have failed.’”

In recent years, he has driven a Range Rover, Ferrari and Audi R8.

Paranoid singer Ozzy was left with damaged neck vertebrae, a broken collarbone and six cracked ribs after crashing a quad bike in the grounds of his home in Chalfont St Peter, Bucks, in 2003.

He said afterwards: “I could have died. I am lucky to be here today. I’ve finally grown up. The bloody thing nearly killed me.”
