According to a Mail Online report, Maisie Williams was thrilled with the good news she received on Friday morning about her driving test result. The actress has been taking driving lessons in secret at the RED Driving School while working on her "Game of Thrones" Season 5 scenes as Arya Stark.

The English actress shared in an Express report that she got really nervous prior to the driving test. In order to calm her nerves, Maisie Williams revealed that she used the techniques that she uses on the set while filming. Additionally, Maisie Williams did not tell anyone, including her loved ones, about the driving test that she took until she found out the result.

Maisie Williams further shared that she wanted to pass the test so she can go back to work on "Game of Thrones" Season 5. The teenager initially thought she would fail but when the examiner informed her that she passed the test, she could not believe it.

"I said no way and then jumped out the car, hugged Dave my RED Driving School instructor and nearly cried. I then told the examiner that I was going to buy a car," Williams recounted. The actress admitted that she is relieved the test is over but the hard part is yet to come which is to go out and drive by herself for the first time.

As for the car that she wants to buy, Maisie Williams shared that it is a dark green original Mini with a white roof and green stripes. However, the actress has not decided yet what brand she is going to buy.
