Justin Bieber has passed his driving test.

The 16-year-old singer was spotted at a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office with his mother on Tuesday (13.04.10) after successfully completing the necessary checks to legally allow him behind the wheel.

According to gossip website TMZ, the star posed for his licence photograph several times before choosing one he liked.

Passing his driving test means Justin is now able to take control of the luxury Range Rover his mentor Usher bought him as a 16th birthday gift last month.

Speaking about his celebrations, Justin said recently: "I was in Los Angeles for my birthday. Usher helped buy me a car. He bought me a Range Rover."

Meanwhile, the teen sensation has spoken about "hanging out" with US president Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their daughters Sasha and Malia.

Justin met the American leader along with Usher at the Christmas in Washington event last December, and again last week when he took part in the annual Easter Egg Roll and thought the experience was "incredible".

The 'Baby' singer said: "Basically, we went to Washington. We did the thing for the president. It was great.

"He was really cool, really nice, and I was just happy to be there. We met his daughters, took pictures with them, took pictures with the First Lady.

"I got to hang out with him in the Oval Office, which is pretty crazy, because no one really gets to go in there. But it was pretty incredible. I got pictures with him."

While their meeting went well, the Canadian star admits the president initially struggled with the pronunciation of his surname.

He added to MTV: "The first time I met him was a couple months back. And when he introduced me, he said, 'Justin Bye-ber.' "
