TODAY we´re celebrating a hat-trick of passes with Lauren Paterson, Conor Reid and James Carey all proudly earning their driving licences at Irvine.

Lauren, from Fairlie, produced a superb drive to pass with just two faults.

Test success is a big boost to Lauren´s bid to become a professional photographer and she said: "Mark truly was an ideal driving instructor.

"He knew how and when to push me to get the best possible results. I would highly recommend him."

Conor, from Saltcoats, did brilliantly to conquer his fears and pass his test at the first attempt.

He said: "Mark is an awesome instructor. I went from being terrified of being behind the wheel to actually enjoying a drive around!"

Computer expert James Carey, from Lochwinnoch, had to deal with the added pressure of a second examiner in the car but held his nerve to deliver a great drive - passing first time with just three faults.

Delighted James said: "l can´t recommend Mark highly enough.

"His fantastic sense of humour will have you learning with a smile on your face from your first lesson to the day you pass your test. Couldn´t have done it without you, mate!"

Student Sam Brown also passed at the first attempt - and he too had an extra examiner in the car.

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."

Earlier this year, Steven Cassidy passed with ZERO faults - a stunning achievement.

Lifeguard Steven, aged 19, from West Kilbride, said: "Training with Mark made me become more confident with every lesson."

Joshua Lynn also passed first time - becoming 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. 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."
