A former British Touring Car champion is backing a scheme to get young people to improve their driving skills.
The skills for life programme is aimed at reducing the numbers of fatalities and casualties on roads in the Scottish Borders.
Up to 400 young people will now be able to take their Advanced Driving Test free of charge, thanks to funding from Scottish Borders Council.
Those behind the scheme, including former racing driver John Cleland, hope it will set a benchmark for the rest of the UK. Jenny Longden reports.
