About Davrian

Davrian cars were built at 65 North Street, Clapham in London, England from 1967 to 1976, in Tregaron, Dyfed, Wales from 1976 to 1980 and Lampeter, Dyfed, from 1980 to 1983.

Adrian Evans, the car's designer built a series of cars called Davrian from 1965 using the aluminium alloy Hillman Imp engine based on the Coventry Climax. In 1967, the design had settled to a 2 seat glass fibre monocoque coupé, officially called the Davrian Demon and series production started with the cars being available in kit form. A variety of power units were offered including Mini, Volkswagen Beetle and Ford Fiesta. Over the years a series of improvements led the cars to go through Marks 1 to 8. They proved very popular in amateur hands as rally and circuit racing cars.

In 1980, the Mk8 was offered as a complete car called the Davrian Dragon but the company was not sufficiently capitalised for this and unfortunately went into receivership in 1982. This car was subsequently relaunched as the Corry and the earlier more basic versions continued being made in the same premises but under new ownership as the Darrian.

Corry 1983-1985

The rights to the Dragon were bought by Will Corry and production transferred to Lisburn, Northern Ireland, to be built by the newly founded Corry Car Company. The body was restyled by Tony Stevens. The cars were mostly sold for competition use but a few road going versions were made.

Darrian 1986 onwards

The Darrian was a revival of the original Davrian in the old factory. The body was considerably modified and the car became mid-engined. Like the Davrian, the Darrian is built using a glass fibre composite monocoque body construction. The engine was usually from a Ford, but the Rover V8 or Vauxhall 16 valve units were options.

The Varying Drivers License Requirements Around the World

Minimum driving ages, the number of passengers young drivers can have with them at any time, the times of day that drivers under the age of 18 can drive…

These all vary depending on where young motorists are driving. They vary, even, across the United States.

For instance, in Maine, motorists under the age of 18 aren’t allowed to have any passengers with them as they drive for the first 180 days after they obtain their licenses. In Alabama, motorists under the age of 18 can have one passenger with them.

And that’s just one example of the differences in driving license requirements from one part of the country to the next. The differences are even more pronounced when comparing one country to another. Minimum driving ages vary widely across the world. While most states in the United States allow youngsters to earn their learner’s permits at the age of 15, many other countries require their residents to be much older before they get behind the wheel of a car.
