I'd just like to state that you can take all the precautions you like, but as soon as one or more of their mates gets a bit rowdy & daring / goading the driver to distraction or break from the norm then you are royally screwed, with the potential for a multi occupancy car crash & all the problems that go with it.

If I could have bought the kid a one seater (not a twizy) it would have been a consideration, as is we bought a small two seater to limit back seat drivers & group goading, told the kid this was based on both experience & foresight, plus being left to pay for fuel whilst driving folk around.

Small smart for two, high seating, small car small footprint, good crash protection at a push was our choice, paddle gear shift, with enough oomph to get her out of trouble overtaking & that's about it.

Drive the 3 ? ...nope.
