What's the best car for my son to learn to drive in?

I need to buy a small car for my son to learn in, then drive when he passes. I am looking for the best combination of safety and value. What do you recommend? We're hoping to spend less than £7000.

We'd look for a Ford Fiesta. There are plenty around - so you and your son can afford to be picky - look for a 1.25-litre petrol, it will be very reliable and should be cheap to insure. Alternatively, consider a Toyota Yaris.
