Information about the training vehicle

Peter Dann driving school carThe car
I use a Volvo V40 R-Design as my training vehicle.

Volvos have always been renowned for safety. Hailed as one of the safest cars on the road at launch, the V40 not only scored 5 stars in the Euro NCAP safety tests but recorded the highest score of any car to undergo the tests. I’ve opted for a V40 because its high levels of active and passive safety fit well with what www.drivewithpeter.co.uk is all about: helping to produce safe drivers, but also drivers who enjoy driving. My V40 is really nice to teach in, and to learn to drive in – it also has a nice sporty character. My V40 features ABS, traction control, all-round airbags, and, of course, dual controls. It even has heated seats for the winter!

Specifications Include:

  • Power Assisted Steering
  • Start-Stop System
  • Dual-zone Climate Control/Air Conditioning
  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Traction Control
  • Dual Controls
  • Six speed Manual gearbox
  • Electric Windows
  • Adjustable Seat and Steering Wheel
  • Spacious Interior
  • All-round Airbags
  • Easy to Read Dash Board

Under the bonnet...
Take a look under the bonnet of my V40 – it’s useful to know what’s what under there for the “Show me - Tell me” part of the driving test:
