I passed in one of these bad boys
H reg 205 Diesel (back in 1991).
Mk 2 Ford Escort 1.1 Popular, 1979.
41bhp, RWD and 145 x 13 tyres. Scary stuff.
mine was a 206, was a good car to learn in...
A Hyundai Accent? Blimey, it's a wonder you didn't give up on driving there and then!
Mine was the ubiquitous R-reg 1.2 Corsa, back in June 2000.
A 1.1 white metro.... my first ever car, back in 1998.
same, turbo diesel. Good car to learn in
B6 Audi A4 1.9TDi SE(well that was for my UK test anyway)
Originally passed in a 1.6L Ford Sierra back in 1990.
Original 70's Mini City (yellow)
A Metro in 1992 when I joined the Army, then straight onto advanced driving in a Landrover 110
Same here, dark nasty green with quite a bit of torque which made it easier not to stall...
vauxhall cavalier 1.8I yes cant forget about the "I"
What ever next...
"What Car did you get you first sh4g in then?...." ****** ell' peeps we are dredging the bottom of the barrel...
In answer to the drivng test question..
A 1981 1.3 Mk1 Fiesta....
And yes, the car did have a rather large glovebox... I know I stuck the driving instructor in there on an emergency stop! :icon_thumright:
N reg Clio, but I'm not saying which question I'm answering...
G reg Nissan Micra.
a pug 205 diesel in 1990 with a clutch pedal that needed 2 feet to press it! i hate french cars - they are made from tin and decorators caulking. and were probably assembled by a woman.
A silver Nissan Micra....probably only passed cause the examiner felt sorry for me
A Nissan Almera
Was my mums car at the time, brought it off her a couple of years later
Citroen ZX K reg. Can't remember what CC but it was far better than the Fiat Uno (instructor's previous car).
Seat Ibiza.then on to a 1987 VW Jetta
White Nissan Micra, 'H' reg.
Peugeot 306 diesel, it was blue
Ford Focus TD, back in 2000
An 02 plate Renault Clio 1.2 4 years ago, was quite a good car to learn in, very easy to parallel park, but as it was a 3 door, and i am quite a tall chap, it was difficult for me to get into a comfortable driving possition! Still, i only needed 14 lessons before i managed to pass my test in it, so i didn't have to bear it too long.
A nice polished turd, called a Triumph Dolomite........ in the year 1980
Mazda MX-5 H reg
a BSM Vauxhall Corsa
I can't remember for sure - it was so long ago. OK, it was 15.5 years ago. I think it was an F reg Ford Fiesta belonging to the driving instructor. Anyway most of my practice driving was in my mum's D reg Polo Coupe S.
A Brand new 1995 Rover Metro with 5 speed gearbox(ooooooh) registered on 1st August, my test was on 4th August, and I only had 1 hours tuition on the day of the test in the said car. I passed 1st time and was the first person to pass in the car!
My very own Audi A3
1990 H reg 205 diesel in 1992. Passed while mum and dad were on holiday. Rang mum's car leasing company, told them I'd passed and had 2 weeks of fun until they came home
They were a good car in the 1970s, provided you got a 1850 or a Sprint. A pal of mine bought a 1973 L-reg 1850 for £150 when we were students, & we hammered round Edinburgh's cobbled steeets for years, mostly sideways.
my instructors Rover 25 2.0tdi
had some go in it considering i was a learner
A mini metro in 1989 God it seems like a long time ago.
But I can still remember my first drive un accompanied. Brilliant.
Ford Taurus GL
1979 MK 2 1.3 Escort a massive 56bhp IIRC. My first car m with no proper lessons, AAHHH those were the good old days, (1989)
Rolls Royce Phantom.
Oh no, my mistake, it was an H reg Toyota Corrola in 1994.
I Passed my test in a New 06 reg Diesel corsa
