Could you pass your driving test again?

Would you pass your driving test if you took it again today? Did you enjoy it the first time round? How many times did you sit the test? Are you driving as well now as you did when you passed?

Well, now is your chance to find out and help to raise funds for charity at the same time.

The MDIA (Montrose Driving Instructors Association) plan to hold a mock driving test assessment day on Saturday, October 24.

Full driving license holders are invited to book a 30 minute test assessment with a qualified instructor in a specially adapted car.

For a donation of £15, or more if preferred, which will go towards Maggies Cancer Drop in Centre in Dundee, you will be tested, assessed, warned, educated or complimented on your driving.

Brian Thomson, Montrose driving instructor and association spokesperson, said: “This will be a bit of fun for drivers that think they drive well.

“Along the route we will be asking poignant questions about the driving conditions in Montrose, which we hope will illuminate the problems we currently experience, such as people parking on double yellow lines.

“The assessments will begin at our centre near to the back of the Montrose Air station Heritage Centre beside the fast food shed.

“Steve Smith, who runs ‘The Hoosie’, has agreed to supply filled rolls and drinks to the nervous drivers.”

As it is a mock test, drivers will be presented with a certificate to inform them of their faults or qualities.

Brian added: “At present we have three cars going out but if there is a big take up we can put on extra cars. We hope this fund raiser will take off.

“Raising money for charity along with driver awareness is the aim of the association.
