Adele Passes Driving Test without being RecognizedBy: Lindsay McCane - October 20, 2013
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.
