Ed Sheeran passes his driving text in Ipswich

Ed Sheeran can ditch the L-plates after passing his practical driving test… less than three months after smashing theory.

He might be 24, but as one of the world’s top musicians, it’s fair to say he’s has a busy few years.

But singer Ed Sheeran can finally ditch the L-plates after he passed his practical driving test in Ipswich, Suffolk on Thursday.

The news was reiterated by driving school Total Driving who took to Facebook on Thursday to congratulate the Grammy-nominated star on his achievement.

The post read: ‘Congratulations to Ed S who passed his car test with us in Ipswich this afternoon. Good effort Ed!!!’

The caption was accompanied by a picture of the smiling redhead posing with his certificate in his hands.

Ed’s happy news comes three months after he proudly passed his theory test, and was seen waving his certificate about as he emerged from a test centre in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

He was greeted by a small group of fans who he willingly showed his results to, proudly showing off the piece of paper as he snapped selfies with an office worker.

After bidding farewell to the handful of admirers, the chart-topping singer headed to his car with a female companion, possibly his driving instructor.

Ed jumped in the driver’s seat and drove off without divulging whether it’d been a successful test or not.

It’s been an extremely busy few months for the chart-topper, with the Suffolk-born star receiving an honorary degree for his outstanding contribution to music at University Campus Suffolk earlier this month.

It was soon followed by the premiere of his new movie Jumpers For Goalposts, then a presenting stint hosting the MTV EMAs with Ruby Rose in Milan, followed by a cameo appearance in Home and Away this week.
