Ms Sturgeon began learning to drive in March after stepping down as First Secretary, describing the step before as “an integral part of the next stage of life”.
Ms. Sturgeon passed the test with flying colors, earning a full score of 50 out of 50 for the multiple choice portion of the test and 56 out of 75 for hazard perception.
Taking to Twitter on Saturday, Ms Sturgeon said: “Step one complete.”

Friend Ricky Bell previously said the lessons were a signal Ms Sturgeon was preparing for life after her tenure as First Secretary.
Speaking to the BBC’s Nicola Sturgeon Podcast, he said: “I think the most important thing was that she said she was taking driving lessons.
“You don’t need driving lessons if you want to be a chauffeur-driven First Minister.”
He added, “She told me many years ago that she didn’t want to take her driving test because she had never failed a test up to that point in her life.”
