A scheme is running in Dumfries and Galloway to help older drivers stay safe and keep driving for longer.
Participants receive three free lessons with a qualified driving instructor and have the chance to take a driving test.
Police and the local NHS launched the programme at the beginning of winter as there had been a rise in the number of elderly motorists involved in accidents.
More than forty mature drivers have taken part so far.
