Bindi Irwin earned her provisional driver's license in her late father's old truck this week, and the recent "Dancing With the Stars" champion took to Instagram to share the news.

Irwin, 17, daughter of the late Steve "The Crocodile Hunter" Irwin, was all smiles in the Instagram photo that received nearly 70,000 likes this week. Many of the more than 500 comments congratulated her on earning her driving privileges.



"Thank you so much to Constable Joshua Little and Queensland Police for testing me today and giving me my license," Irwin said in the photo caption. "It was wonderful to take my test in St George and pass the first time and in my Dad's giant old ute."

Steve Irwin, the conservationist who earned international fame through his television show on Animal Planet, died in 2006 after he was attacked by a stingray off the northern Australia coast. Bindi Irwin was 8 at the time, noted People magazine.

Bindi became a household name in America when she won Season 21 of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" last year with professional partner Derek Hough. The teenager won the heart of many fans with an emotional tribute to her father during the live, televised dancing contest.

"I never really talked about everything that I felt when dad passed away, and I never thought I'd revisit that," Bindi Irwin said in November, according to "Entertainment Tonight." "But to have Derek there to say, 'It's OK, I'm there for you,' was something that I was so grateful for."

"Sometimes during rehearsals it feels like there's three people in the room. And I do feel like dad is still with me, every day," Irwin added.
