Barely Legal Drivers, Series 1 Episode 5 of 6

Duration: 1 hour

Twenty-year-old student and party girl Lauri from Kingston-upon-Thames has a brilliant relationship with her parents, but hasn't driven a car since she wrote her eighteenth birthday present off, two years ago.

Eighteen-year-old supermarket worker Dean from Polegate near Eastbourne has a fractious relationship with his dad, but all he wants is for his dad to be proud of him. However, he doesn't do himself any favours by smoking in the car, speeding and driving dangerously in terrible weather.

With dodgy driving, disappointed parents and dead batteries, do these two barely legal drivers deserve their own car or should they get ready to head back to driving school?
