WASHINGTON, May 21 (UPI) -- Six years after then-ten-year-old Malia Obama watched America send her father to Washington, America's elder first daughter is ready to drive the city's streets herself.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, First Lady Michelle Obama said Malia will spend her summer undergoing an important teenage rite-of-passage, learning to drive a car.

"Look out," the first lady remarked when the subject came up. When asked if Malia would be driving with secret service agents riding in the back, Obama only said that she and her husband "have a plan."

Last month while appearing on LIVE with Kelly and Michael, Obama told Michael Strahan that neither she nor the president would be teaching Malia to drive.

I think our [Secret Service] agents don't want us driving with teenagers ... Especially the president's detail. I don't think they want him in the state when she's learning how to drive. We will fortunately be able to hand that responsibility over to someone else.
