Washington: Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan has finally been permitted to drive, it has emerged.

According to sources, people at the Betty Ford clinic finally decided to hand over Lohan’s keys - exactly two weeks after her license was restored by the L.A. County Probation Department, reports TMZ.

Earlier, Betty Ford was reluctant to let the ‘Mean Girls’ star drive - because they thought paparazzi would follow her creating a dangerous driving environment.

However, according to sources, Betty Ford was proud of the way Lohan handled the delay with patience - and following phone calls from both her parents, the clinic decided it was time to hand over the keys.

But this doesn`t mean that the actress can drive whenever she wants - she can only get behind the wheel when she gets a pass to leave the sober living facility.
