Panda in my opinion is probably the easiest manual car in the world. To learn to drive on. A small but not a tiny car,making it very easy to manoeuvre. Consequently pupils will take far fewer lesson's to achieve the test standard. Compared with some cars some instructors use. Possibly half the number of lesson's. It is possible to achieve test standard so quickly pupil's are more prepared to take the extra lesson's needed. To make them a safe and confident driver.
