Partnership with Vauxhall Penfolds of Lewisham
A ten-year partnership between two local businesses has proved so successful it has helped over 1,000 drivers pass their driving test.
Penfolds, Lewisham's motoring expert has provided owner of >> In~Control << Driving School, Patrick Garner, Approved Driving Instructor with no less than ten Vauxhall Corsa's over the last ten years, making him Penfold's number one customer.
The combination of expert tuition and a stylish, easy to drive car has led to an impressive track record for Patrick Garner's South England based driving school.
Richard Penfold, Managing Director of Penfold's says "We're delighted that our cars have played a part in getting over 1,000 first time driver's on the road - we've even had some drivers so happy with the Corsa that they've come back and bought one once they've passed their test! We're also delighted that Patrick has chosen to return to us for his cars so consistently over the past ten years and we look forward to providing his school with the next 10 Corsas!"
Patrick says "It took me a long time to find a car that was perfect for learner drivers and also for my own private use. Finding a small, nippy, exciting car that was also comfortable for an instructor who is 6' 3" made this a challenge, but the Corsa ticked all these boxes ten years ago and it most certainly still does now. Most importantly, the learners seem to find it really easy to drive and I think over 1,000 successful students prove this".
