BSM performs turn-in-the-road and ditches Fiat for Vauxhall

Tom Webster

The UK's biggest driving school has performed an emergency stop and a turn in the road and dropped the Fiat 500s it has been using for the past 18 months and gone back to the Vauxhall Corsas that it used to have.

The entire 3,250 strong fleet of 500s will be replaced by the Corsas, and BSM says the decision has been taken after consultation with its instructors. As many as 80 percent said that they preferred Corsa and wanted their old cars back. The original deal with Fiat was signed for four years in 2009, but BSM has activated a break clause to get out of the contract early.
