Austin Mahone fails driving test this week – twice!

“She told me to stop singing in the car,” tweets the VMA winner…

Austin Mahone may be an MTV Video Music Award winner, but that doesn’t mean that everything goes his way!

The star, who nabbed the Moonman for Artist to Watch at the VMAs last week, took to Twitter yesterday to reveal that he’d failed his driving test, not once, but twice in one day!

The 17-year-old tweeted asking his Mahomies to wish him luck as he prepared to complete his rite of passage, but things didn’t go according to plan, with the star later updating his fans on his progress.

“I failed,” wrote the ‘What About Love’ singer on the micro-blogging site. “She told me to stop singing in the car.”

But it seems the instructor was willing to give Austin a second chance, however after informing his 4 million-plus followers: “I got to take it again!” it seems that his skills hadn’t undergone much improvement during the hour long gap between tests.

“Failed again,” he wrote. “I’m so mad.”

Judging from Mahone’s update this morning though, it looks like he’s getting set to give it yet another tomorrow, tweeting that he was heading out to have a drive around a parking lot so he doesn’t “suck” when he retakes the test.

Maybe the star was too busy focusing on his killer VMA pre-show performance last week to learn how to master a parallel park?

Fingers crossed it’s third time lucky, Austin!
