British singer Adele was stunned when a motoring instructor who helped her pass her driving test insisted he did not recognize any of her songs.

The "Rolling in the Deep" hitmaker celebrated passing her the test earlier this month with the help of driving instructor Noel Gaughan, but he has now revealed he had not heard any of her tracks.

"I didn't know who Adele was so she started singing in her lessons. The problem was I didn't know any of her songs," Gaughan tells the Daily Telegraph.

"She would sing some beautiful songs and say 'You must know this one' but I don't really know many celebrities."

The instructor has also given lessons to movie stars Gemma Arterton, James McAvoy and One Direction singer Niall Horan.

Adele later credited Gaughan for steering her through the tough test, saying, "[I] could not have done it without him."
