Get the green light

To get the green light is a traffic idiom and it's positve.

It means that you have been given approval, permission or consent to do so something.

Our proposal has got the green light. You could also say it's been given the thumbs up or the OK.

If you're on a motorbike, safe driving is even more important and some drivers don't get the green light for their driving!
