Amy and James

Barely Legal Drivers, Series 1 Episode 3 of 6

In this episode, we meet two teens who love life: nineteen-year-old glamour girl Amy, who hopes to be Yorkshire's answer to Katie Price, and James, an identical twin from Middlesbrough.

Student Amy may be confident enough to strip down to her undies for a photo shoot but when it comes to driving, it's a different matter. What with going through red lights, pulling out in front of a bus and stopping dead on a motorway slip road, it isn't just Amy who is a nervous wreck; it's her mum too.

Unemployed James has spent the last year applying for over a hundred jobs, and the constant rejection has knocked his confidence. But behind the wheel he is full of bravado, so much so he will happily drive with almost zero visibility.

With in-car peer-group pressure, death-defying manoeuvres and life-saving reactions, do these two barely legal drivers deserve their own car or should they go back driving school?
