Learn to drive in a new Ford Fiesta!
Our car of choice for learner drivers is the new Ford Fiesta in White. The Fiesta is the most common car on the road and often a great choice for new drivers to purchase themselves after passing their tests.
We love that the Fiesta is easy and comfortable to drive, providing a great experience for our pupils. The car is a great size to practise turns and manoeuvres, without being over sized and making things more difficult.
You can always expect the car to be clean and ready to do for your lesson. There’s also temperature and climate control for all-year round weather.
