Scarlett Moffatt, who failed her driving test 13 times, will host a BBC program that aims to help struggling learners pass their test.

The former Gogglebox star, from County Durham, will welcome learners who were unable to master driving while being taught by friends or family when vocational lessons were harder to come by due to the pandemic.

Each learner and his amateur teacher will be accompanied by the best driving schools and an intensive course. They are then challenged to pass their test after five days.

Hope my new show gives us all the confidence to finally rip those L-plates and hit the road.
