My drivers ed car at school was a 1980 Mazda GLC, but I did most of my learning on my mother's 1977 Ford LTD Country Squire station wagon. That thing was like piloting a cruise liner. And it's the one where I took my drivers' test, with a grumpy Alabama State Trooper who jumped my case for doing a "rolling stop" at two stop signs.

* driving school : Mitsubishi L-200 (aka Strada)
* my parent's 2003 Honda City
* my parent's 2004 Mazda B2500 (aka Fighter)

("parent" I mean my father or my mother. And I have no cars, in other words, there are no cars registered to me or my name.)

The first car I learnt to drive (with my parents, when I am very young, unknown date/year) is a 1995 Mitsubishi Lancer (fifth generation) (sold).

Now we have an another car, a 2008 Proton Gen-2 (Model origin = Malaysia, Built in = Malaysia, Made for = Thailand). :boggled:

The first time I learn how to drive the car is my grandfather's "Leuchtorange" 1972 Volkswagen Sedan 'Beetle'. I was only 15 years old back then. Then, my dad did allow me to learn to drive more tricky clutch on Verona Green 1972 SAAB 99E on my 16th birthday that would eventually became my first car. The first car that I passed for my driver license is my mom's 1977 SAAB 99GL. All cars on my first were manual transmission :grin:

I took my licence in the driving school's BMW 116i, and also drove a Volkswagen Jetta [A5] TSI in driving school. Before that, I also practiced in our Chrysler Voyager in an empty parking lot a few times.

A Renault 5 'Supercinq' to learn on, Renault Clio at the driving school, and the first car I bought was a 2nd hand Renault M├ęgane. And I'm not even that crazy about Renault.

I learned to drive with my parents 1995 BMW 325i (E36) sedan. It was Boston Green Metallic with tan-leather interior and walnut wood trim.

The car was equipped with the 4-speed automatic gearbox, which was optional. I wish it would have had the standard manual gearbox, but, oh well.

Unfortunately I can’t find any family photos of it. But I’m almost sure we took at least one photograph of it at some point. If not, surely it is seen in the background of some of our old family photos somewhere. I just haven’t found any photos yet where the car is seen.

I did find this photo of a look-a-like. It would pass as it’s twin. Same year model, same exterior and interior colour, and same alloy wheel design:

I remember it had the optional power sun roof, multi-information display with Check Control (on-board computer), genuine leather seating surfaces, and standard 4-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS). I miss that car... :sad:

All my driver's ed cars were Chrysler K-Cars. The trouble is, I forget whether they were Dodge Aries or Plymouth Reliants. They might've been both.

Here's the weird thing about that; In "The Proud Family Movie," there's a scene where Penny Proud is learning to drive with a K-Car. That movie was made in 2005, which means a car like that would be way too old for any driver's ed class of the 21st Century.

The first car I ever drove was my parents' 1993 Dodge Grand Caravan (dark green with gray interior, SE trim) on the same day I got my learner's permit in 2002. I shifted it out of park and promptly jumped the curb. Most of my subsequent learning was in a 1990 Honda Accord coupe (beige with burgundy interior and a sunroof, EX trim - an excellent car that I will remember fondly forever) that had been bought new by my grandfather and then passed to us after his death.

At driving school, they had a selection of a few cars for basic training in the parking lot; I gravitated towards the oldest one and only Chrysler product: a Dodge Spirit. The on-the-road portion of the course was taught in a generic late '90s Chevrolet Malibu.

I learned the basics in a few cars over the years... The only one that sticks out in my memory is my dad 1994 Ford F250 Crew cab diesel pickup.

Over here, you get your permit to go drive with any licensed driver in the car, then you go take the test in your own car.

Well, My mom was too nervous to ever take me driving... So my permit actually expired before I even got to "practice" driving! By this time, I was 18 and had already owned 5 or 6 cars in my life. Finally, I got fed up and just started driving my 1988 Ford Thunderbird (with the 5.0 V8) to work and back every day, that is where I got most of my in traffic training.

A month later, I took the test in my grandmothers 1999 Honda Civic and passed it with flying colors.

I learned on my mom's 1982 Mazda GLC sedan. It was a 4-speed manual in Lime Green Metallic. It became my first car when I started college. The other car I got to drive was my dad's black 1987 VW Quantum GL-5 sedan with an automatic. I took this to my senior prom. The driver's ed car at my school was a POS brown Ford Fairmont sedan with horrible brakes. I remember approaching a yellow light, I went to brake and the instructor yelled at me that there wasn't time. We coasted through a red light. Later I found out that the Fairmonts had some of the worst brakes installed in any car.

Due to circumstances I went through a number of driving instructors (also had a couple of stupid old farts who I decided not to continue with after the second lesson) over a period of nearly 3 years (didn't pass my test until I was nearly 20), but the car I spent the most time in as a learner would have been my dad's 1995 Fiat Punto 75 SX.

The instructor I was with the longest had a Ford Escort MkVI diesel. That was the largest car I drove as a learner because in Britain new drivers can't get insured on anything much larger/more powerful than that. All driving instructors over here use small hatchbacks (nothing bigger than a Ford Focus).

The first car I drove as a learner was a Mercedes A-Class (probably an A140) but only had a few lessons before the self-employed instructor got a new job doing something else (he wasn't a very good teacher anyway). The car I eventually passed my test in was a Ford Fiesta MkV (an instructor's car).

Like many I don't think I became a competent driver until I started getting experience driving unsupervised after passing my test.
