Community safety groups in Aberdeenshire are offering young drivers (under 25) £150 towards the cost of the Pass Plus driving course.
Pass Plus costs around £180 and young drivers applying to their local community safety group can get useful driving skills for a greatly reduced cost.
As well as the safety benefits of taking part, a successful pass could also result in lower car insurance, as some companies offer discounts for new drivers with a Pass Plus certificate.
Over six modules, people can learn more about driving at night, in different weather conditions, on city and rural roads, dual carriageways and motorways – areas that sometimes cause inexperienced drivers to lack confidence and as a result may have accidents.
