Goodyear offers driving lessons to Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes

The Upshot

What do you get the troubled young Hollywood star who has everything (except the ability to stay out of trouble when behind the wheel)?

Driving lessons, of course.

At least that's what Goodyear thinks.

In light of the recent problems Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes have had on the road, the tire manufacturer has written letters to the actresses, offering them free driving lessons, according to ABC News Cleveland affiliate WEWS-TV.

Lohan and Bynes, who are both 26 years old, have been involved in multiple driving dramas.

Lohan, who has two DUIs and is on probation, was arrested in New York City on Wednesday, accused of leaving the scene of an accident where she allegedly hit a pedestrian.

Byne was charged on Friday with two counts of driving with a suspended license after being involved in a string of minor car accidents and violations around Los Angeles in the last six months. She also has two hit-and-run charges against her and a DUI case.

Goodyear, which sent the letter to the agents of Lohan and Bynes, is offering free transportation to the company's headquarters in Akron, Ohio "for a private 1-on-1 lesson with our professional drivers — no paparazzi allowed."

The letters have touches pertaining to each actress' career. Lohan's suggests that with driving lessons, she'd be able to "show Herbie the Lovebug a thing or two." Lohan starred in "Herbie: Fully Loaded" in 2005. And Bynes's says, "Not all of us can be all that on the road" — referring to her Nickelodeon show of the same name, which ran from 1994-05.

According to TMZ, it is unclear if either actress has accepted the offer.
