Opps cant find anything - too many trees !!! - I mean by that I didnt notice it - sorry
I learnt to drive in Red MK2 fiesta back in 1984.
How old do i feel.

I have often seen driving instructors giving lessons in cars like mini coopers, mini ones and Alfa mitos. I assume they hope the cars will attract custom over the more standard cars out there, but I did wonder how the value of the car would be affected and how fearful the instructors would be whilst teaching parallel parking etc with kerbed alloys.
Today in Cambs I saw a driving instructor giving a lesson in a 61 plate cooper S. Seemed a bit OTT, especially cos I doubt many learners will be able to get something as powerful when they pass.
I learnt in a 105 1.5 diesel I believe. The diesel engine was very easy to learn with, hill starts etc.
Positively youthful I should think when I say my driving instructor had a 1974 (2 years old at the time) MkI Escort!
I feel a bit better now, first car was mk1 2 door escort £50 m/reg .
Best driving school cars I've seen are a Subaru Impreza WRX and a Golf R32.
Wonder how much they charge an hour.
I learnt to drive in a mkII Nissan Micra back in 2000.Passed first time,too.
Driving a Picasso empties your wallet.
Good, my first car was a MkII Cortina that cost £230 and was a complete shed - glad to see the back of it!
BTW, rpf72 I passed first time too after 10 lessons in 8 weeks (the day after I passed my motorbike test).
My mum's Mk 1 Fiat Panda in '85.
Like everyone else here I passed first time. My father taught me so I didn't bother with any formal lessons.
