A young driver safety day in Scotland is being sponsored by a local undertaker, it has been reported.

The Daily Record has commented that Graham Rattray has teamed up with police in the area in order to fund the course.

Motorists between the ages of 17 and 25 can take part and it may be that they pick up skills that can help them preserve their car insurance policies in the future.

According to Mr Rattray, he would quite welcome a downturn in business if it meant fewer road deaths among young people.

"I would prefer everyone lived a good life and died of old age rather than in a mangled up car," said the undertaker.

This comes as transport secretary Ruth Kelley plans to improve driver learning and testing systems.

Her ideas have been welcome by transport sector skills council GoSkills.
