Because traffic laws are just for the common rabble.

So how many people will change their mailing address on their driver license to 85 Albert Embankment, Vauxhall?

You know who else got a license to drive?

"Need I remind you, 007, that you have a license to kill, not to break the traffic laws."

Not true, apparently.

Are these just spooks who work for the Brits or can any spies get a license?

Here's a snap of the application, filled out.

I hope the high speed training involves having sex with Ukrainian super models whilst being chased by men with metal teeth and machine gun mounted Lamborghinis through downtown London.

My favorite was after the person smashed his "burglar protected" Lotus Esprit and the car explodes as he's walking through the lab with Q in a subsequent scene he says "Oh, I see you've managed to get the Lotus back together again."

Do they have to be actual spies, or is a military intelligence MOS code enough?

I live in a residential area on a side street, on a steep hill.  Where most drivers tend to accelerate rapidly down hill, and then jam on the brakes just before they get to the stop sign.  What's up with that?  It's stupid, that's what it is!

Doesn't telling people that you're a spy sorta ruin the surprise?

M's car in Skyfall was equipped with emergency lights for this purpose.

It is actually possible there is biblical support for this.
There are some verse about Lucifer that seem to indicate another place and time.

Spooks will need to take a course in high-speed driving before they're given a licence to speed, says the BBC.

it's much better to have diplomatic imunity.
You can even race the cops, and if they get you, you can tell them to fark off.
