the car

The car you will learn to drive in is a new

Citroen C3 Blue HDi 1.6 diesel (manual gearbox)

It features:

  • 1.6 Blue HDi diesel engine (diesels are less likely to stall)
  • Dual controls
  • Driver, front passenger, lateral and curtain airbags
  • Fully adjustable seat (inc. height) and height/reach adjustable steering wheel
  • Air conditioning
  • Speed-sensitive power steering
  • Anti-lock braking system
  • Innovative, Eco-friendly design
  • Blind spot monitoring system
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Reversing camera
  • Built-in dashcam
  • Satnav

I have chosen this car for several reasons. It has some excellent safety features, and also the diesel engine is less likely to stall than a petrol. Pulling away is made easier as the car has a light clutch, making it easier to control. The speed-sensitive power steering makes driving very easy in all situations, including the reversing exercises (there is also a reversing camera which helps with the manoeuvres)

I also have the latest Tomtom Satnav to help with practising the independent driving (I have the exact model used on the practical tests, so you will be completely familiar with the type of instructions given during this part of the test)

If you would like a trial lesson to see whether the car will suit you, please contact me here.
