    Default What car did you learn to drive in?

    A silver diesel Vauxhall Nova, brand new to the driving school when I sat behind the wheel for the first time. It had 5 gears and a cassette player and everything!

    My instructor had at first a silver K reg Ford Fiesta. & changed to a blue N reg Fiesta while I was learning to drive. Both were diesels, which had some quirks compaired to a petrol car.

    I learnt to drive aged 17 in '89, and my instructor had a dark blue 'E' plate Toyota Corolla 1.3 saloon, similar in size to a Ford Orion.

    I had my driving lessons in early 1980, in a Mazda. I couldn't recall the model but after some research on the Internet, I found it!

    No, it was the driving school's car. It was a lovley car to learn in.

    The first one I owned was a mini. I agree about cost. I drove for 20 years but have not driven for the last ten. I certainly couldn't afford to run a car on my low wage, but I live in a small town where most things are a convenient walk away and I car-share with a neighbour to get to work. I'm actually quite a happy non-driver these days.

    I also learnt to drive in a Nova as well as an old Morris Ital (drive that and you can drive anything!!!!)
