Malia Obama, the president's oldest daughter, will begin driving this summer as she apparently plans to get her driver's permit shortly after celebrating her 16th birthday on July 4, the first lady mentioned in a series of recent interviews.

"One child is going to be driving this summer," first lady Michelle Obama told "Access Hollywood" in a joint interview with actress Sarah Jessica Parker that aired Tuesday.

"Look out," Obama added with a smile.

When asked if agents will sit in the back seat, Obama would say only, "We’ve got a plan," CBS News reported.

As for who will be teaching Malia Obama how to parallel park and properly make turns, it apparently won't be either of the Obamas with their busy schedules.

When asked by Michael Strahan on the morning talk show "Live with Kelly and Michael" about who will be teaching Malia how to drive, Michelle Obama said, "neither of us."

"I think our agents don’t want us driving with teenagers," she added. "I don’t think they want [the president] in the state when she’s learning how to drive. We will, fortunately, be able to hand that responsibility over to someone else."

During the "Access Hollywood" interview, host Billy Bush also asked the first lady if there was any dating among her daughters, considering Malia is 15 and Sasha is 12.

"They’re good. They’re good. The girls are good," Michelle Obama replied as she apparently dodged the questions, adding with a joke, "You just want me to get pushed off the Truman Balcony," which apparently could be the result if she divulged any information about her daughters' dating lives.

As for her younger daughter Sasha, Michelle Obama told "Access Hollywood," "My youngest loves dancing. She dances in an organized program several times a week, but they’re into what kids are into – they’re counting down to summer."

Obama and Parker were on "Access Hollywood" to promote the White House’s Turnaround Arts Program, which according to the entertainment website "brings arts into the country’s most underprivileged schools to increase student engagement."
