Steve Irwin's son Robert turned 16 a few months ago and he is finally ready to get his learner's driving licence. 

The teen revealed that he will be learning to drive in his late father's old utility truck, which Australians call a 'Ute'. 

"Here we go! I’m so excited to finally start driving... and happy to be learning in the best car - Dad’s old Ute!!"  Robert wrote on Instagram. 

The truck was used in 2002's 'The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course' film. 

Robert's older sister, Bindi, also learned how to drive in their dad's iconic 'Ute'. She got her driver's licence in 2016.

Steve died when Robert was a few months shy of his third birthday. 

The Australian zookeeper passed away in September 2006 when he was 44 years old. Robert, Bindi, and their mother Terri have been continuing Steve's legacy. 

The family still own and run Australia Zoo, which was opened by Steve's parents Bob and Lyn Irwin in 1970.

Bindi, who is 21, will soon become a missus.

She got engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Chandler Powell, last year.
