Aussie singer Paulini is rejoicing after getting her driver's licence — the "legal way".

The Australian Idol alum shared the happy news on Instagram today, while also poking fun at her run-in with the law in 2017, during which she pleaded guilty to bribing a government employee in return for an unrestricted driver's licence in NSW.

"So something happened… This time I did it the right way… The legal way. I got my LICENCE, I sat the test, I did the driving test and I passed. 🚙 😅," the 38-year-old announced on Instagram.

In her post, Paulini thanked her driving tester for helping her "feel comfortable in my own skin".

"I can't tell you how empowering it feels to have done it. I learnt to trust in my own ability," she added. "Last attempt, I didn't have the confidence that I could do it... I was so wracked with anxiety... (So I tried to buy one... and we all know how that ended)."

Her jokes didn't end there, with the singer telling fans to give her a wave if you see her out and about on the roads. 

"Or maybe don't I should be focused with two hands on the steering wheel 😁," she noted. 

And it appears Paulini will be driving around in a new set of wheels. In her Instagram post, she also shared a photo of a newly purchased Audi adorned with a giant red bow.

As a refresher, four years ago Paulini pleaded guilty to one charge of bribing a government official $850 to unlawfully obtain a driver's licence.

She was lucky to avoid a jail term, with a magistrate at the Mount Druitt Local Court in NSW giving her a six-month suspended sentence and placing her on a good behaviour bond for the same amount of time.
