My first was a peugeot 106, in proper boy racer fashion; used to think it was a little bullet.
Mum's a driving instructor so i had free driving lessons :D She had a corsa and if people can't drive a corsa they shouldn't be allowed to drive, it could not be any easier.

As above i proceded to write off my 106, then got an astra!

For me it was first an automatic Audi 500e, then a Toyota hilux 4x4 (must say after that everything was easy), then a corolla and lastly a Renault Clio

Don't know that I actually remember "learning". The first time I drove was in a Ford Corsair Automatic and the first car I owned was a Ford Zodiac Executive which, as a large 3-litre V6, was a bit unconventional for a 17 year-old yet to take his test. I learned by buying annd driving (often illlegally, I confess) various cars and, having got my head around a manual gearbox, had been driving for 12 years before ever going for my test. I'm not sure why!! The final car I "learned" in was a Fiat X1/9 (a 2-seat convertible popular in the 70s) which I fully intended turning up for the test in until I was advised against it. Finally went to a driving school the week of the test who insisted I have an hour lesson (my only one) before they would let me use their car for the day.

I passed but it wasn't plain sailing and the examiner clearly thought I was a ringer.

Actually thinking about it, i first learnt to drive in a Mazda 323 it was one of my mates 'field car'. He had a few acres of land and we used rag that all over the place till it died, it didn't take long :lol:
