Adele wants to appear on 'Top Gear'.
The 25-year-old singer only recently passed her driving test, and she already wants to join Jeremy Clarkson and take part in the show's 'star in a reasonably priced car' segment.
Noel Gaughan, of London driving school Intensive Courses, said: "She was ecstatic when she passed. I nearly cried when I saw how much it meant to her. It was something she'd wanted to do for years, but hadn't had the chance.
"She's a gifted driver and what she really wants it to be on 'Top Gear', with my encouragement. We discussed it and it's a dream."
The 'Skyfall' hitmaker passed her test last week, and the driving instructor revealed she wanted to do it to give her son Angelo a "normal life".
He added: "It's so important to her to have freedom, doing what normal people do. She wanted this for her and her little boy so she can have a normal life and drive around just the two of them without chauffeurs or minders in the car."
And despite her plans to appear on the show, she won't be drawn towards expensive cars, preferring to stick to her own Mini Cooper.
Noel said: "She absolutely loves driving, but she doesn't want a Ferrari or anything special. She did the test in her own Mini and loves that because no one recognises her."
