"Driver's License" singer Olivia Rodrigo got her first-ever parking ticket.

The 18-year-old artist publicized to her 7.3 million followers via an Instagram story on Sunday that she had received a parking violation from the City of Los Angeles.

She showcased her ticket with the caption "Damn this driving s--- isn't all fun and games."

This is the "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" star's first time getting a parking ticket since getting her license last summer.

Rodrigo told her Instagram followers that she got her license in July 2020 by saying that she was planning on cruising around to Gracie Abrams' "Minor" EP, and notably sad song, "I Miss You, I'm Sorry."

"happy girl in the dmv parking lot because I (finally) got my drivers license!!!!! also @gracieabrams ep came out today so now I can drive around the suburbs alone and cry to I miss you I'm sorry like a true American!!!!!" she captioned the since-deleted photo, according to Just Jared.

Rodrigo has been open about how driving and sad music are intrinsically linked for her.

"I was driving around my neighborhood, actually listening to really sad songs and crying in the car, and I got home and I was like, 'Maybe I'll write a song about this - crying in the car,'" she told Zane Lowe about the making of her song "Drivers License" in an Apple Music interview.

She continued: "So I just sat down at my piano and plucked out some chords that I liked and it kind of happened that way."

Rodrigo's first song "Driver's License" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January. It went on to top the chart for eight consecutive weeks, becoming what Billboard has described as "one of the most dominant No. 1s of [the] last 30 years."

The track is also speculated to be about an apparent love triangle involving her costar Joshua Bassett and 21-year-old singer Sabrina Carpenter.

In the past, Rodrigo's described the process of getting her driver's license to be "really sad," because it took her four tries to become fully certified.

Her first driving test was canceled due to COVID-19, the second one was rescheduled due to filming conflicts, and the third one was canceled due to unsafe vehicular conditions, according to an interview with PopCrush.
