Congratulations, Ariel Winter!

The Modern Family star, 15, is celebrating a milestone this week, having passed the driving test for her learner's permit in California.

Think she's excited?

"I PASSED. I PASSED. I PASSED I PASSED I PASSED!" she wrote on Instagram Wednesday, posting a photo of her holding the certificate. "I am now a permitted driver … be scared. Actually don't be … I'm a safe driving nerd. YAY!!"

To get a learner's permit in California, you must be at least 15½ years old, complete 30 hours of classroom courses and six hours of driving training, and pass a driving test.

Winter will turn 16 on Jan. 28.
