JAY-Z is teaching his wife Beyonce Knowles how to drive.

The Single Ladies singer has been going out on morning drives in New York with her 40-year-old husband, avoiding the rush hour glare and steering clear of paparazzi.

A source said: "Jay and Beyonce normally go out mid-morning when it's quiet. Their bodyguards are always in tow but never ride in the car with them."

Beyonce is doing so well that Jay-Z is looking to buy a car for her. She is keen on avoiding anything flashy. This has derailed his plans to get her a Bentley.

The source told The Sun: "Beyonce wants something smaller. Money isn't an issue but she does not want to feel like she's driving a tank. She does want a car that's big enough to take out her family and friends if she needs to, though."

Beyonce has previously revealed she would like to start a family at some point in the future, and wants to be just like her own mother Tina - who helped nurture her talent in Destiny's Child as a young girl.

She said: "It's not time for that yet. But definitely there will be a time. I want to be a great mother, the kind of mother that I have. I want the same bond that I had with my mom.

"The security and love I feel being in a relationship, a marriage, it's absolutely incredible. Incredible." - Bang
