Student Sam handled the pressure superbly to earn his licence at Irvine test centre.
Though the examiner was checking the handling of Sam´s test rather than his drive, the presence of another person in the vehicle still ramped up the pressure he felt.
Sam, 17, from West Kilbride, said: "I´ve never felt so nervous!"
And he added: "Going from zero knowledge about driving to passing my test was made as easy and stress free as possible because of Mark.
"Mark is a great instructor - as his stats for students passing their tests show - and I would recommend him to anyone looking to make a safe and confident driver of themselves."
Earlier this year, Steven Cassidy passed his driving test with ZERO faults - a stunning achievement.
Lifeguard Steven delivered a highly impressive drive to pass at Irvine.
Steven, aged 19, from West Kilbride, said: "Training with Mark made me become more confident with every lesson.
"It was definitely an experience I won´t forget! I would highly recommend Mark."
We´re also celebrating with Joshua Lynn who passed first time - Mark Grundy School of Motoring´s 75th newly-qualified driver.
Accountancy student Joshua, from Stevenston, passed his test at Irvine after just 31 hours of tuition - a great achievement.
The 21-year-old said: "My experience of learning to drive with Mark was great and I would definitely recommend him.
"His meticulous style of teaching means no stone is left unturned by Test day."
Actor Gordon Houston, currently performing at the Edinburgh Dungeon, produced a command performance to pass his driving test.
Gordon, from Ayr, earned his licence at the town´s driving centre and immediately said: "If it wasn´t for Mark´s guidance and fantastic teaching, I would not be holding this licence today."
Last summer, Graduate Euan Aitken delivered a sensational drive to pass his driving test in Ayr at the first attempt with NO faults.
The 23-year-old, from Troon, currently building a career in procurement, said: "Mark has been brilliant from day one."
