Lindsay Lohan is one court appearance away from putting her 2007 drunken driving case behind her. The actress, 25, received a glowing report from Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner on Wednesday during her brief -- little more than five minutes long -- scheduled progress hearing.

"Ms. Lohan, you're in the home stretch," Sautner told the actress. "The probation officer is pleased with your progress.  ... You seem to be getting your life back on track."

Lohan must still work 14 days at the L.A. County morgue and attend five therapy sessions before returning to court on March 29 for final scheduled court appearance. She would remain on informal probation for a case filed after she took a necklace without permission in January 2011, but would not have to report to a probation officer.

The strict probation regimen of weekly morgue shifts and therapy sessions seem to have helped Lohan regain her footing.

"She is on the homestretch now and eager to move her focus to film and television projects," Steve Honig, a rep for Lohan, told E! News.

Lohan is scheduled to host "Saturday Night Live" on March 3.
