The UK wide Bill Plant driving school has switched its fleet of driving tuition cars from Vauxhall Corsas to Hyundai i20′s.

The company has received 60 i20 cars so far with a further 500 to be delivered by Hyundai over the course of the year.

Roy Danby, a spokesperson for the Bill Plant driving school said: “The i20 is an excellent, easy-to-drive car for our pupils and they give great feedback on it. It’s a pleasure to teach in and the peace of mind of the safety features reassures both pupil and teacher”.

Hyundai Sales Director, Guy Pigounakis, said: ‘We’re delighted that Bill Plant Driving School pupils will be taking their lessons and tests in the new Hyundai i20. After passing I’m sure many will not want to part company with this excellent supermini”.

Vauxhall’s loss of the Bill Plant contract follows BSM’s recent decision to switch from Vauxhall Corsas to Fiat 500′s, a contract worth 14,000 cars over the next three years to Fiat.
