question about driving schools

ummm hi

I'm currently planning to get my drivers license. What do you think is the most recommendable car to do the practical lessons with.

any tips which cars are comfortably easy to handle?

Re: question about driving schools

Well, the latest Ferrari Modena is a bit rough when going around corners, but otherwise a sound car. The Koenigg F-50 is a nice all round ride, or if you're looking for an ultra lightweight contender, have a look at the Lotus Range.

But my personal favourite is the Super Sport 1100, 1971 model Skoda.

The Big Boss is the MTF car-dealer, send him a PM.

Hope this helps .

Re: question about driving schools

The car I learned driving with was an Opel Vectra, it was a nice car. After I had gotten my license I even asked my teacher if I could have it but he said no. By now he has sold it and has bought a brand new Mercedes. Exactly the one that I'm getting in November. I wonder what it's like to do practical lessons with this car...
Actually every car is comfortable in its own way, you have to find out which one's best for you plus, you usually have to stick with the car that your driving teacher has.

Who wants to play with my balls?

There are many people don't know how to dry in their whole life. If I'm still living in Hong Kong, I doubt I will know how.

Re: question about driving schools

And to answer the thread, where do you live, RogerRocks? I may recommend a Hummer but not sure it's available or not.

With a Hummer, you can mow down everything on the street without a scratch

Except when you need to learn how to parallel park

no I've never seen a Hummer in germany. You think they're available in US driving schools? I think they're really ugly

Re: question about driving schools

Serious, RR...I encourage you to learn to drive in a manual transmission/straight-shift. I know things are a bit in Germany (I'm presuming that's where you are) than here...most driver's education is taught in the high schools (for free...and sadly only in automatics).

Just remember, easy on both the brakes and gas...and you'll be fine.

Good luck!

I love my girls.

Parallel park is a total different set of technique, so RR can learn using another car, like a Mini

thanks, yes I guess I will learn in a manual car. Actually I was told that's more fun.

I was just comparing different offers today and it seems to be impossible to get the whole thing done for less than 1,000 € here
