    Just finished my driving classes two weeks ago in a Maruti 800. Tried a little bit in Santro also but felt M800 is better to learn.

    I learnt on the Fiat millicento. If I remember correctly, it had not yet become the Premier Padmini. I think it was in 1966!

    1968 model Premier Padmini, I got hold of the steering balance in it. Then came a 1982 model Ambassador Mark II into our family on which I started to really stand on top of the brakes and accels.

    i knew bit of driving since childhood as dad used to have MM-Jeep and driver used to make me handle the steering by aking me sit on his lap on long journey's when i was as young as 4 years old... on and off i used to drive on highways... once in 7th Std, my friend's Fiat Padmini was taken out and I had the 1st chance to drive it in a ground... for 10-20 meters and was asked to go back to passenger seat as I couldnt drive it propoerly... Professionally i learnt from Jai Ambe Driving school in Jaipur... in a run down M-800 with Gas fitting... that used to stop in every other corner of the road.. it was fun driving it... realtime driving in my own Swift...hitting few bystanders initially...

    Interestingly, I bought a brand new indica DLS without knowing to drive (2001) ... Then joined a driving school and liked a red santro that they used to give me during the course. That santro qualifies as my first car I learned to drive in !

    @Aaron - with 5000km on the ODO , you are not taking your driving lessons well with the linea baby :p
