The Applause hitmaker received no standing ovation from the cop who pulled her over.

Newbie driver Lady Gaga was pulled over by police for a traffic violation just weeks after she finally received her driver's licence.

Earlier this month (1Jul16) the 30-year-old Poker Face singer took to her Instagram profile to inform fans she had passed her driving test, writing in a caption attached to a picture of herself behind the wheel of her old school red truck with a friend sitting in the passenger seat: "Thelma and Puhleaaaze (And yes I FINALLY got my license after years of driving with an adult present and a learners permit). I’M FREE. Rollin with the homies."

Although initially delighted by achieving the milestone, on Friday (15Jul16) Gaga got a taste of the bad side of being on the road after being stopped by a traffic cop on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California.

TMZ obtained photos of her conversing with an officer on the side of the road, with the cop looking at paperwork, presumably her licence and registration, while he stands next to the driver's side of her vehicle as she speaks to him through her rolled down window.

No details about the potential moving violation have been revealed, and it is unclear whether she received a ticket for any minor offence.

But the incident seems to have been insignificant, as Gaga had her attention on a larger tragedy just hours after being pulled over.

The pop star took to her Twitter account to acknowledge the tragic attack in Nice, France that took place on the country's national holiday Bastille Day (14Jul16), with the star tweeting to followers: "I am praying for you France. When u open your eyes and see chaos, we will close our eyes and see harmony. We are with you. Praying for the the losses of life in this country & around the world , I pray for the victims families who see no justice. We are one."
