With the average UK driving lesson costing over £22 per hour, in addition to the theory and practical test fees, learning to drive can end up costing you a small fortune.

Arnold Clark Car & Van Rental can help keep those costs down while giving young drivers-to-be as much experience as possible, thanks to our dual control cars for hire.

Hiring a dual control car from Arnold Clark Car and Van Rental will allow you to get some extra driving practice in addition to your professional lessons – something that is highly recommended by road safety charities such as the IAM.

“If dual control cars help parents to give their teens more experience to supplement professional lessons then that works for the IAM,” spokesman Neil Greig told us recently.

“Parents often only supervise at quiet times and places because they worry about dealing with an emergency.

“Dual control should reduce that stress and leave you free to try out driving at night, in the wet, on busy roads and out in the country. The more miles you drive as a learner, the safer you will be in the long run.”

  • Our dual control cars are reliable Vauxhall Corsa models
  • They have manual dual controls to allow the instructor to help out with difficult situations
  • High visibility graphics on the car ensure you are safe and clearly seen on the road
  • Each car has front and back L-plates

As long as you have an accompanying driver who is 23 years or over, and has held a current and valid UK driving licence for a minimum of three years, then you can drive away with one of our fully-equipped dual control cars.

At only £15 per hour to hire, dual control cars are an affordable way to get extra driving practice – and, with over 30 branches offering this service throughout the UK, it’s convenient too.
