This sponsored post brings back fond memories of learning to drive. Can you recall your first experience behind the wheel? I can. It was a sunny Sunday afternoon and we we’re driving a bakkie on the N1 to Cape Town. Being only 13 years old I was allowed to steer while my family drove. It was the most exhilarating experience ever. Ok, so it wasn’t really driving but being to control the movement of a car was the most responsibility I’ve ever had back then. From that moment I always wanted to learn to drive and had to wait a few more years until I got my learners license when I turned 17. My mom owns a driving school so as soon as I could, started my driving lessons once a week before school in a Mazda Midge. Can you remember those cars? They looked something like this:
There have been many changes to Mazda in the 15 years since then and they’ve just launched the New Mazda3 in South Africa.
Mazda have just relaunched, independent of the Ford Motor Company, spearheaded with the introduction of the all new Mazda 3 in South Africa. Here is a brief overview:

If you’d like to book a test drive click here. I would if I was in the market. Heck I wouldn’t mind driving the Mazda 3 for a week or 2 just to relive the fond memories of learning to drive in the Mazda back in 1999/2000. Just watching this ad below reminds me of the freedom being able to drive gives me 🙂
