What our customers say

My daughter has just passed her driving test and being able to hire the dual control car from Arnold Clark, at such a reasonable rate, and so conveniently, over the past 9 months has been a massive help. All of the staff were extremely friendly and supportive throughout and I would gladly recommend your service to anyone – it’s unbeatable!
