Schapelle Corby finally gets L plate drivers licence

 She doesn’t have the best record when it comes to passing strict transportation checks.

But fourteen years after failing an airport security test, Schapelle Corby, 40, showed Brisbane’s Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) who was boss.

The convicted drug trafficker took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce she’d finally acquired her L-plate licence.

Now she can get her own Mercedes! Convicted drug trafficker Schapelle Corby, 40, looks jubilant in celebratory snap as she FINALLY gets her L plate drivers licence

‘Driving around with the old ‘L’ plates on now,’ she captioned a jubilant snap, that showed her holding her bright yellow plates and Queensland drivers licence.

As per regulations, Schapelle was not able to smile in her licence photo, opting to pose with a slightly tense expression for TMR officials.

‘And my Mums in the passenger seat,’ she revealed, indicating Rosleigh Rose would be her driving instructor.

Her ride to work is about to get WAY easier: 'Driving around with the old 'L' plates on now,' she captioned the jubilant snap, that showed her holding her bright yellow plates and Queensland drivers licence

Under Queensland law, she’ll have to wait twelve months until she can take a practical driving test.

But it will go by like the wind for the 40-year-old, who learned all about long, boring waits in the nine-years she spent in Bali’s Kerobokan Prison for drug trafficking.

Because she’s over 25, Schapelle will not need to submit a log book – a boon for both her and Rosleigh, who can simply sit back in the passenger seat and observe. 

Her sister Mercedes was overjoyed upon hearing the news, taking to the post’s comments section to write: ‘Yewwwwwww.’

Schapelle has been productive since she’s been back in the country, already releasing a fresh, club-ready track, called ‘Palm Trees.’

After the media turned her heavily auto-tuned debut single into a viral sensation, news of an LP, or preferably double LP intriguingly did not eventuate.

But finally, after a nail-biting few weeks, she recently appeared to hint a follow-up single is on the way, sharing a clip of the chorus to Instagram on Saturday.

It seems critics of her first single – a collaboration with unknown pop wunderkind Nat. Z – for its heavy use of pitch modulation, will be pleased this time around.

In what looked to be a short (unofficial) teaser trailer, Schapelle’s un-doctored vocals could be heard in a hand-held video of a kookaburra in a tree.

 The songstress’ familiar dulcet tones rang out to the tune of classic track ‘Kookaburra (sits in the old gum tree),’ originally sung by Marion Sinclair in 1932.
