On a écrit: "Allez, monte dans la voiture!"

mais je me demande si cela devrait être "Allez, montez ..."?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Monter dans, descendre de = To get on, off transportation (prepositions)"

Bonjour zizi ! You are not wrong here, as both sentences would be perfectly correct: "monte" would address one person in an informal way, and "montez" would address either several people, or one person in an formal way. The use of "allez" here is colloquial, and doesn't necessarily match the number of people spoken to. This is just the way to say "Come on!". I hope that's helpful! Bonnes Fêtes et à bientôt !
