SEVENTEEN-YEAR-OLD Kathryn Burton is celebrating after passing her driving test at the first attempt with Mark Grundy School of Motoring.
Kathryn passed with just three driver faults at the test centre in Irvine.
Celebrating afterwards, she said: "Really enjoyed learning under Mark´s tuition. It was good fun.
"Will actually miss driving under his guidance. Thanks so much Mark."
Kathryn, a volunteer student now heading to China to teach English for a year before going to St Andrews University, delivered a superb drive after 40 hours of tuition.
Her success follows that of Matthew Robertson who also passed his test first time.
Delighted Matthew delivered a calm and competent drive to earn his licence at Ayr test centre.
The 21-year-old, from Ayr, immediately headed off to enjoy a sunlit drive in his treasured BMW M Series.
Reflecting on his learning experience, Matthew said: "Thanks for everything you have done for me.
"Best instructor in Ayrshire and everyone should use you to learn to drive!"
Angie Fraser-Moore´s imminent new arrival, Isaac, put mum under huge pressure as her test date approached, but she drove excellently to pass at Ayr.
The Bhuddist massage therapist, from Seamill, said: "Over the moon to pass.
"You will struggle to find a more competent or gifted teacher than Mark - not to mention the unforgettable one-liners thrown into the bargain!"
Angie´s success followed that of Andrew Ashley, from the Isle of Arran, who passed first time with just four faults at Irvine test centre.
Andrew, of Machrie, a student gamekeeper, was delighted with his success.
He said: "I found my experience of learning to drive with Mark great.
I would happily recommend him to anyone learning to drive."
Alasdair Eaddy, from Beith, an ´older than most´ learner, also passed his driving test at Irvine.
He was nervous about the challenge of learning to drive but, as he began celebrating, Alasdair said: "Mark´s very relaxed, calm attitude made it a pleasure to learn. I couldn´t recommend him highly enough."
Earlier this year, student Liam Robinson delivered a stunning drive to pass with just one driver fault at Ayr.
Liam, 18, from Inverkip, was rewarded for his tremendous commitment during driver training, and enjoyed unstinting support from his mum, Louise.
In January, catering expert Marina Wilson got the New Year off to a flying start by passing her driving test at Irvine at the first attempt with just three faults.
After losing her hearing, Marina, from Beith, had to learn to lip-read and sign and then took on the challenge of learning to drive.
