Kia's Driving School programme is now available with the Kia Venga

The Venga joins the Picanto & Rio superminis, the cee'd & pro_cee'd hatchbacks and the Soul urban crossover on the programme offering an unrivalled choice of instruction-ready vehicles to driving schools.

The Venga is ideal as an instruction vehicle. The European designed and built Venga is available with a choice of 1.4 and 1.6 petrol engines and a 1.4 CRDi diesel engine and comes in three trim levels: Venga 1, Venga 2 and the top-of-the-range Venga 3.

Launched in July 2009, the Kia Driving School Programme has been well received by professional driving schools looking for all inclusive instruction vehicle package. Tony Bedford of AB Driving School in Leeds currently operates eight Rios: "We moved to Kia in 2009 after experiencing reliability issues with a couple of other brands. Having a vehicle off the road is a serious issue for us and our customers so Kia's product reliability was particularly appealing. The 100,000 mile seven year warranty is great for piece-of-mind and, obviously, competitive pricing makes them a very compelling proposition for instruction vehicles."

Commenting on the growth of the Kia Driving School Programme, Andrew Sellars, head of fleet & remarketing for Kia Motors (UK) Ltd said: "The Kia Driving School Programme has been growing ever since it began last year. Kia is relatively new to this marketplace but now with six models to choose from, some great contract hire deals and a car that's insured and all ready-to-go I've got no doubt that the addition of Venga will see more learners pass their test with flying colours in a Kia."
