What is the longest drive, in a car, that a person could take anywhere on earth?

According to Google Maps you can drive from Juneau Alaska to Cancun Mexico (5314 mi). It can't calculate the drive from Cape Town to Cairo, let alone up into Europe or to Siberia.
So, my question is: How far could a person drive on earth with these obvious conditions:
- You can't just drive in circles
- You can't drive up and down or side to side unnecessarily
- You are taking the most direct route between point A and point B.
- Actual roads have to exist. This isn't about the distance between places, but actual driving miles.
