Adele Passes Driving Test without being Recognized

According to the official VIP driving school website, they are the “first and only VIP driving school in the UK. VIP driving courses is aimed at people with very busy lifestyles that are looking for a bespoke level of driving instruction. VIP clients will be exclusively taught by Noel Gaughan.”

Mr. Gaughan, however, did not seem to recognize the famous singer, Adele, while he gave the 25-year-old her driving test, until she started singing her hit songs during her lesson.

“I didn’t know who Adele was so she started singing in her lessons. The problem was I didn’t know any of her songs,” he said. “She would sing some beautiful songs and say, ‘you must know this one’, but I don’t really know many celebrities.” Ironically, Gaughan seems to attract celebrities. He has given lessons to James McAvoy, Gemma Arterton and Rhys Ifans, among others.

Adele has won Grammy Awards, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, has two globally successful albums, and has given birth to a son before she decided to take her driving test. However, she was very excited when she passed with only one minor, which Gaughan said was exceptional.

She took to Twitter later that day to show her excitement and said that her driving success was due to Gaughan. “Noel is dumbledore of roads. Could not have done it without him and his jokes changed my life,” she said.

    Thanks for this Lindsay. Well done Adele can’t believe the driving instructor didn’t recognise you.

      That instructor is a liar, How do you know not know who Adele is especially when she’s from your country and got super famous in the states? I can see maybe not recognizing her but not knowing any of her songs? Yeah right? Even people in remote places know her.

  • Yes

    I can see this happening. Adele looks just like an average person. I also do not know her songs. I have heard them once or twice though. She is a very good singer.

    So she was trying her best to get her instructor to know who she is? “Wait, wait, wait, you must know this one…” Sounds a little self-righteous to me.

    Adele’s a good singer, but I don’t know any of her fuggin’ songs either! And who the hell is “Gemma Arterton?” She’s supposed to be a celebrity? Maybe she’s a legend in her own mind. Jhit! WALLY COX IS MORE FAMOUS THAN HER, AND HE’S DEAD! Heh heh heh heh heh heh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Most people under 50 have never even heard of Wally Cox, or seen him on Hollywood Squares. As I recall, he was the quintessential wimp, but then he was also best pals with none other than Burt Reynolds, a man’s man.

    The instructor must live in an igloo surely not to recognize Adele! Still its good for Adele, I could imagine she would be under a lot more stress if he recognized her.
