the car

The car you will learn to drive in is a brand new 69 plate

Citroen C3 Aircross 1.2 Petrol (manual gearbox)

It features:

  • 1.2 litre petrol engine
  • Manual gearbox
  • Dual controls
  • Keyless ignition (you just push a button!)
  • 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 (including Stop/Start to save fuel)
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Reversing camera with split screen view (very useful for parking!)
  • Satnav

I have chosen this car for several reasons. The high driving position and large windows means visibility is very good. It also has some excellent safety features and pulling away is made easier due to the car having a light clutch, making it easier to control. The speed-sensitive power steering makes driving very easy in all situations, including the reversing exercises (The reversing camera also has a special ‘overhead’ view which really 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)
