TODAY we´re celebrating with Alexander Allan who had to pass his driving test to secure his job.
Despite facing that incredible pressure, Alex held his nerve to pass first time - a stunning result.
Alex, a mechanic from Kilwinning, earned his licence at Irvine test centre.
Afterwards, Alex, who has just turned 21, said: "It still hasn´t sunk in yet. This is life-changing!
"Thank you for all your help, Mark. I couldn´t have done it without you."
Alex´s success follows that of Paul Irwin, from Kilbirnie, who passed first time at Irvine with just 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 two years ago when she was 17.
Julie´s feat matches that of Liam Robinson, from Inverkip, who passed with just one fault at Ayr early last year when he was 18.
Ryan Hood, 19, from Ardrossan, also produced an excellent drive to earn his licence at Irvine.
Student Ryan said: "Thank you for all the time and help you put in, Mark. I sure as hell couldn´t have done it without you."
Stuart Anderson, 17, from Port Glasgow, coped superbly with the pressure of having an extra examiner in the car to earn his licence at Greenock.
He came to Mark Grundy School of Motoring as part of his prize for being a winner in the Recruit personal development programme, run by Inverclyde Council, which receives sponsorship from my driving school.
Stuart´s first-time pass kept up a proud family tradition, as his brother, Callum, a former winning Recruit, also passed at the first attempt after training with Mark Grundy School of Motoring.
Stuart said: "A great guy, a great instructor - with great banter.
"I passed first time - and it was all down to the tuition from Mark."
David Low, 33, kicked the New Year off in fine style when he passed with just three faults at Ayr.
David, who works in the entertainment industry, said: "Mark was friendly, professional and patient. He knew exactly what was needed to get me through my test."
