One Direction star Niall Horan has bought himself a $112,000 (£70,000) car after passing his driving test.

The Irish singer sailed through his exam last Tuesday (08Jan13) and purchased his first vehicle, a luxury Range Rover, on Friday (11Jan13), according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

Horan passed the test in Essex, England after taking an intensive 25-hour course of lessons.

A source tells the publication, "He stopped to speak with fans and signed lots of autographs during his lessons... Even with all of that, his instructor was still overheard saying he had never had a pupil so focused on passing his test."
