UPDATE: Third time's a charm for Austin Mahone, who passed his driver's test on Thursday. "I FREAKING PASSED!!!" he tweeted, "AHHHHH I'M SO HAPPY...STREET LEGAL!" Congratulations, Austin!

It looks like Austin Mahone will be a backseat driver for a little bit longer than expected!

The YouTube sensation had a disappointing start to his Wednesday as he took to the roads for his driving test.

After he asked his 4 million-plus Twitter followers for some good luck, the 17-year-old heard the words every teenager dreads to hear: You didn't pass your driving test.

"I failed," Mahone tweeted. "She told me to stop singing in the car." Well, that's certainly not the worst advice one can receive from an instructor. But lucky for Mahone, the singer was able to get a rare second chance.

"I got to take it again!" he shared with enthusiasm one hour later. Unfortunately, the results weren't any better.

"Failed again," he said. "I'm so mad."

Could somebody be more focused on their music instead of their driving skills? The singer has been busy promoting his smash hit single "What About Love" and most recently performed at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

With his first headlining tour kicking off this October, we're hoping he can squeeze in some more practice in order to get that precious license. The Mahonies are rooting for you, Austin!
