A YOUNG motorist has boosted her driving skills following an advanced course on the road.

Jodie Hughan (19) from Newton Stewart, recently took up the challenge of the Institute of Advanced Motorists “Skill for Life” driving course.

After a number of observed drives, a demonstration drive from an observer, and some friendly coaching to raise the standard of her observation, hazard perception, and driving skills, Jodie took the test with a police class 1 driving instructor, to a successful conclusion.

As a young driver Jodie was able to take up one of the limited number of sponsored places the group has available for under 25s.
