The Car

The car that you will be learning to drive in and in which you will take your driving test, will never be more than 3 years old. The car is well-maintained and regularly serviced, for reliability and safety.  The vehicle is always kept in a clean and tidy condition for your comfort.

The current car is a 2017 Renault Clio Dynamique Nav Eco 2, 15 DCI Turbo Diesel. The controls are easy to operate and understand.  The clutch, brake and accelerator are nice and light, which makes it an extremely easy car to drive.  Being a diesel it is more forgiving to drive, less likey to stall, also not needing to change gear as often compared to a petrol car, it has good all round visibility, which really helps with manoeuvres.  It has all the modern safety features and accessories that you would expect from a new car – Sat Nav, power steering, electric windows, electric mirrors, ABS, air conditioning and a multi-adjustable steering column, and driving seat to cater for all heights, to name just a few of the many features.  The car also has dual controls.
