Hockly Driving School Fiesta

All your learner driving lessons with us will be conducted in our dual-controlled, manual transmission, Ford Fiesta Edge 1.25 petrol. It has electric power assisted steering which makes manoeuvring much easier, electric windows, air-conditioning, central locking, anti-lock brakes, and electronic stability control. It has a dual brake pedal and a dual clutch pedal fitted to ensure your safety at all times.

Driving School Car

This vehicle has been chosen specifically because it is small, has very light and easy to use controls, and is very easy to manoeuvre. It has excellent all-round visibility, and is probably one of the easiest cars to learn to drive in.

Most cars currently on the road, especially the type of car that you are likely to first own, have a petrol engine. Learning to drive in a petrol engined car makes it be easier for you to transition between our car and your own (or parent's) car, so making it easier for you to get private driving practice, in-between your lessons, without struggling with the differences.

Petrol cars are more flexible in the gears, more forgiving, quieter, don't stall so harshly, and are much more responsive than diesel. Learning in a petrol car will also mean that you learn to use the gas and clutch properly when pulling away, which is very important to know in certain situations, such as pulling out into a fast roundabout.

Diesels are more economical, but we prefer teaching in a petrol car, just because it is cleaner, and quieter, better to learn in, and more pleasant to be in.
