First driving test passed in a Renault ZOE

The first driver to take a UK driving test in a Renault ZOE was successful and passed on 14th September.

This is the first test passed in a ZOE in the UK, as far as is known. Young drivers have previously been able to try out a ZOE, for example at the Bluewater’s Young Driver facility, but a ZOE has never actually been used for a driving test. This contrasts with the fact that the ZOE in France can actually be ordered in a driving school version with double pedals.

It is also known that drivers have learned in other electric cars including in the Nissan Leaf in Stoke-on-Trent, and at least one has passed in a Leaf in Sunderland, and a Vauxhall Ampera in Hull.

Our congratulations go to Emma for this feat, and a possible place in the history books!

    In Belgium if you pass your test in an EV, you will not be allowed to dive a stick shift car in the future. Does the UK also have that rule?

    But since EVs are so easy to drive, they are perfect for learning. That way the student can focus on driving skills in stead of figuring out how to deal with the car itself.

    I always feel sorry when I see a huge SUV with an L. Why would you want to learn how to drive in such a big car?

    Yes, in the UK if you pass in an ‘automatic’ you can only drive an automatic.
