Most driving schools in the 70s up to the late 90s use the VW Beetle to teach learners how to become professional drivers.
Today, most schools approved by the FRSC now offers different kind of cars, ranging from economy cars to luxury cars.
So, which car did you use to learn how to drive?
In the 70s up to the late nineties, everyone knows that the now iconic Volkswagen Beetle is the car of choice offered by most driving schools in Nigeria to teach learners how to become professional drivers.
The Volkswagen Beetle, known by many names across the world, including the Ijapa in Nigeria, was a favourite back then due to its affordability as well as repair costs.
So in the event of an accident, the cost to repair the Volkswagen Beetle isn’t always a problem, compared to using a personal or a luxury vehicle.
Unlike in the last century, most schools approved by the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) now offers different kind of cars, ranging from economy cars to luxury cars like the Mercedes E-Class, to teach learners how to drive.
But in both cases i.e in the 70s and today, a learner driver must get behind the wheel, where he or she is taught by a driving instructor on how to deal with all driving situations.
