It's official: 17-year-old Bindi Irwin is a licensed driver.

It's hard to believe that the young television personality and conservationist is old enough to get behind the wheel. But then again, Bindi did solidify her knack for hand-eye coordination when she was crowned as last year's victor on Dancing with the Stars' Season 21

But while Bindi certainly has a lot to be proud of, the young star is far from big-headed about her wins. 

Gracious as ever, Bindi took to her personal Instagram account this Tuesday to post a special celebratory pic—and heartfelt thank you message to boot. 

"Thank you so much to Constable Joshua Little and Queensland Police for testing me today and giving me my license," Bindi captioned alongside a glowy pic of herself proudly holding up a "P" sign next to the equally smiley official. 

Not only did Bindi throw the town and it's police department a friendly nod, but she also made sure to pay thanks to one very special person in her life—her father, Steve Irwin. And of course, his old pickup truck, which happened to serve as the vehicle in which Bindi completed her road test. 

The starlet continued, "It was wonderful to take my test in St George and pass the first time and in my Dad's giant old ute!" 

This isn't the first time that Bindi has poised her own accomplishments in tribute to her late father. "Throughout my life, I'll continue down that journey of just trying to empower others and following my heart and my dreams of carrying on my dad's footsteps and having fun each and every day," she revealed last month on Oprah's Where Are They Now? 

Keep having fun, Bindi, and congratulations on the latest milestone.
