She's a little behind schedule, but Miranda Cosgrove is ready for a set of hot wheels. There's just one problem.

"I need my license!" the iCarly star, 17, told PEOPLE at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. "My parents have been trying to get me to get my license. I have no idea why I don't have it."

The delay, at least, has given the actress time to reflect on what car she wants. A year ago, on her 16th birthday, she told PEOPLE she wanted a Volkswagen Bug. Now, she's changed her mind.

"My dream car would be a Range Rover Sport – white with black tinted windows," she said. "But I will not end up with that. It's probably going to end up a [Toyota] Prius."

Though she might not have flipped through a driver's-ed manual just yet, she has had her nose in the books – in particular, prepping for the SAT two months from now. "I'm nervous," she says. "I've been going through it. I feel like I'm getting kind of ready. I'm almost ready."

But fans, rest assured. College – probably at either USC or NYU – will not send Cosgrove into hibernation. "I'm still going to do acting," she said. "Acting is my passion."
