TODAY we´re celebrating with Jenna Carpenter who has passed her driving test with just one fault.
University researcher Jenna, from Ayr, drove superbly to earn her licence at the town´s test centre.
Proudly displaying her pass certificate, Jenna said: "Thank you for giving a nervous person the confidence to be able to drive anywhere through your brilliant, laid-back but encouraging teaching style."
Jenna is the second pupil to pass with just one fault this year, following Ardrossan janitor Robbie Hood´s stunning performance when passing first time at Irvine.
Robbie said: "Thanks, Mark. It´s been a pleasure. You can have a laugh but always stay focused and get everything done safely. I would recommend you to anyone."
His success was followed by that of student Chris Langridge, of West Kilbride, who also passed at Irvine and rugby player Logan Maxwell, from Troon, who passed first time, with just three faults, when he sat his test at Ayr.
Chris said: "If anyone wants a top notch instructor, Mark´s your guy."
And Logan added: "I´d just like to say congratulations Mark, I knew you could do it from the start! Great driving instructor and a great friend."
Robbie, who was celebrating his 20th birthday, passed a year after identical twin, Ryan, also passed his test with Mark Grundy School of Motoring.
Earlier this year, Jack Kerr, from West Kilbride, passed first time at Irvine with just three driver faults after just 30 hours of tuition.
Delighted Jack, who is studying to be a maintenance engineer in Britain´s nuclear industry, said: "I´m thrilled to have passed and it was all down to Mark and his excellent tuition."
Late last year, Connor Wallace, 17, passed his driving test with just two faults in his home town of Ayr.
Connor, who is now starting a career in hospitality on yachts around the world, said: "Thanks, Mark! I really enjoyed it - and I couldn´t have done it without you."
Natasha Scott, 18, also passed at the first attempt in her home town of Ayr.
Beauty therapy student Natasha said: "I couldn´t have done this without all of your help, Mark!"
She followed in the footsteps of mechanic Alexander Allan who had to pass his driving test at Irvine to secure his job.
Alex, 21, from Kilwinning, said: "It still hasn´t sunk in yet. This is life-changing!"
Paul Irwin, from Kilbirnie, passed first time at Irvine with three driver faults.
Paul was following in the footsteps of brother, Ross, from Largs, who passed his test with Mark Grundy School of Motoring in 2013.
In April, Julie McClymont delivered a sensational performance to pass her test with just one fault.
Stunned Julie, aged 17, said: "I feel absolutely amazing!" after hearing she had passed at Irvine.
The lifeguard, from West Kilbride, added: "I like the way you teach, Mark.
"I now feel I could drive anywhere, while some of my friends who have passed are still nervous about driving."
Good driving runs in the family, as Julie´s sister, Heather, recorded just two driver faults when she passed her test at Irvine when she was 17.
Julie´s feat matches that of Liam Robinson, from Inverkip, who passed with just one fault at Ayr when he was 18.
