Hard work behind the wheel pays off for Adele

Adele has passed her driving test.

The 25-year-old singer started lessons back in March because she wants to get a car so she can drive her 12-month-old son Angelo around without having to rely on his dad, her fiancé Simon Konecki.

Adele's hard work behind the wheel has paid off and she announced it on her Twitter account this morning: "I passed my driving test this morning!!! (sic)"

Now the 'Skyfall' singer has got a UK license she will also be able to drive a car when she is in the US.

Adele had wanted to learn to drive years ago but was put off from getting lessons after her fame increased due to the phenomenal success of her album '21' in 2011.

A source previously said: "She's never taken a test because of her busy schedule over the past few years ... She may have various awards to her name but all she wants is her driving test certificate."

The musician - who is believed to currently be working on new material - will now have no problem taking Angelo to play groups or travelling between her two homes in London and Brighton, South East England.
