One of the UKâ€™s biggest driver training providers, RED Driving School, has announced a 3-year deal with Renault for the supply of the Clio to their driving instructors. What does the deal mean for learners and RED Driving School Instructors? Book Theory Test Today investigates.
Book Theory Test Today says: â€œThis is great news for both learner drivers of RED Driving School and their driving instructors. Itâ€™s also not a bad deal for Renault, itâ€™s definitely good business getting involved with one of Britainâ€™s largest driver training organisations.â€
It means that thousands of wannabe motorists will now be seen taking their lessons in one of Renaultâ€™s most popular vehicle models.
The deal is particularly beneficial to driving instructors of RED Driving School, for whom this will be a one-of-a-kind manufacturer-driven deal. They will have the opportunity to take advantage of the deal by procuring their own tuition vehicle directly with Renault.
Instructors will be offered the cars on appealing 18-month finance deals, potentially saving them around Â£240 per month.
RED Driving School corporate colours
The car in question will be the Renault Clio Expression+ and will feature either a turbo diesel dCi 90 engine or a TCe 90 petrol engine. They will be equipped with dual controls and have three custom-colour paintwork finishes, including Diamond Black, Flame Red and Glacier White, which are in keeping with the RED Driving School corporate colours.
As the Clio is already an established tuition vehicle, RED Driving School were delighted to seal the deal to acquire a vehicle that is uniquely styled and suited to their brand. Low maintenance costs and fuel economy, which could potentially save instructors Â£400 per year, were also key factors in the deal.
Talk of the deal
Chief Executive of RED Driving School, Ian McIntosh, said: â€œWe found the Clio to be an excellent training and tuition car. On top of that, the industry-leading finance rates we are able to offer instructors means the Clio could offer them significant cost savings too.â€
Sales Director of Renault UK, Darren Payne, said: â€œThis deal is particularly pleasing as it means thousands of drivers a year will have their first driving experience behind the wheel of a Renault. This is a fantastic advert for our brand and will help us win over the next generation of Renault drivers.â€
Book Theory Test Today says: â€œStudents of RED Driving School can take full advantage of taking their DVSA practical driving test in the car they were taught in. This is hugely beneficial as familiarity helps to ease some of the nerves come test day. Thereâ€™s nothing worse than taking a driving test in a vehicle thatâ€™s unfamiliar, so this is a big bonus.â€
