Indeed. It's standard procedure when a user has been added to a group.

It is required and conspicuously documented for all users, including
experienced ones, if they can be bothered to do read it. For example,
in the cups README.Debian.

  'Administration' is where you need to be to set up a local print queue.
  At some point you will be required to authenticate. A User Name of 'root'
  and root's password is always acceptable. Any other user must be a member
  of the lpadmin group.
