Brooklyn Beckham passes driving test

David and Victoria Beckham's eldest son Brooklyn has passed his driving test.

The teen began taking driving lessons in his native U.K. after turning 17 in March (16), and it appears he is a fast learner after he was recently spotted behind the wheel of a luxury car alone.

His representatives have since confirmed to DailyMail.co.uk that model and budding photographer Brooklyn has gained his driver's license, and photos obtained by the publication's editors suggest his famous parents celebrated their boy's latest achievement by treating him to a brand new Mercedes C-class, which retails at around $49,940 in Britain.

Meanwhile, Brooklyn has spent the past week in the U.S. with his actress girlfriend, Chloe Grace Moretz, who he recently reunited with after dating on and off for the past two years.

The young couple was spotted spending part of the Independence Day holiday weekend (02-04Jul16) working out in Los Angeles, where Brooklyn gave the paparazzi a glimpse of his toned torso as he lifted his muscle T-shirt during the outing with his girl and a male pal on Saturday (02Jul16).

Brooklyn's visit took place days after Kick-Ass star Chloe went on the attack online after tiring of Internet trolls who poked fun at her and her boyfriend, who were turned into targets on social media after going public with their romance in April (16).

Taking aim at "people hiding behind computer screens", the 19-year-old took to Twitter to ask when they'll get "tired of calling someone 'fat' or 'masculine'?"

"Does it make you feel good typing your hateful comments?" she asked. "Does it fulfill you in some dark way?"

It's not clear exactly what prompted the teen's rant, but she reminded detractors that people who write ignorant things on a celebrity's profile are hurting a "real HUMAN BEING".

"He or she is a PERSON, with feelings and thoughts and a life that you are affecting so negatively," Chloe added.

"I've spent my whole life in front of cameras growing up with miscellaneous people judging and critiquing every little thing about myself. It's time we all stop hiding behind keyboards pretending we know even the smallest thing about the people we judge."
