Ariel Winter Gets Her Driving Permit

Another member of young Hollywood is on the road.

Ariel Winter, who plays Alex on "Modern Family," officially has her driver's permit.

The 15-year-old took to Instagram to express how excited she was, with a caption reading:

I PASSED. I PASSED. I PASSED I PASSED I PASSED! I am now a permitted driver.....be scared.😏 Actually don't be...I'm a safe driving nerd😝😌 YAY!! #soexcited #driving #permit #ipassed #ICANDRIVE #thisjusthappened #proud #eeeeeeep

And from the photo, we can presume that she is back to brunette.

It certainly has not been an easy time for the young star, who has been fighting a custody battle with her mother after abuse allegations. She is currently under the guardianship of her older sister.

Eyes on the road!
