Scarlett Moffatt’s Driving School

Expect drama, tears and plenty of emotionally-fuelled moments as we gear up to see whether Scarlett Moffatt can finally pass her driving test – on the 14th attempt. Viewers will join Scarlett behind the wheel on her own lessons, with cameras capturing every driving disaster or minor scrape. Scarlett first started learning to drive aged 17 but despite countless personal achievements and successes since getting a driving licence has always evaded her.

Now, she has opened the doors to a unique driving school in Teesside to not only bag her own licence but to help other learner drivers of all ages struggling to pass their tests. In some cases, these luckless drivers have been learning for decades, with others even failing their test as many times as Scarlett. Each week, one learner will attend Scarlett’s driving school with a long-suffering family member or friend who has patiently taken on the role of coaching them outside of professional lessons, with little luck ….until now.

In this, the third episode of the ten-part series Fatemah has still never taken a driving test despite learning to drive for eight years. It’s fallen to the 25-year-old’s adoring but nerve-shattered dad Akil to instruct her. There’s steering-wheel grabs and much more, but the problem might not be coming from the driver’s seat…

The series is not just about driving – it’s about relationships, helping the couples and taking the heat and stress out of driving. Along the way, the learners also share touching moments with their loved ones as they drive towards a common goal.

Traffic Cops

Jamie Theakston presents as North Yorkshire’s Traffic Cops pursue lawbreakers in the northeast of England. The Traffic Cops are under pressure as they are called out to deal with back to back accidents across North Yorkshire.

Witnesses are needed after a motorcyclist is left with life changing injuries when a pick-up truck careers into the back of him while he’s parked up in a layby next to the busy A64 near York. A pensioner struck by a lorry on an industrial estate near Scarborough is left with serious injuries and taken to hospital, while cops look for witnesses and video footage to discover exactly what happened and who was at fault.

Also, officers suspect a lorry driver, left trapped in his cab with head injuries after a crash on a bend near Leeds, could have been unharmed had he been wearing a seat belt.
