Advice for new drivers choosing their first motor
When it comes to buying your first car, the choice can seem a bit daunting! We're here to help you figure out what could be the best first car for you, featuring some of our young drivers' favourites:
The popular Vauxhall Corsa is a favourite with young drivers. Fun and enjoyable to drive, yet safe and spacious, a Corsa is a great first car which will make you smile every time you get behind the wheel.Discover
Are you looking for something quirky? The Fiat 500 stands out from the crowd with its unique retro styling yet modern driving style. Vintage looks with new car tech? It's the best of both worlds.Discover
The Fiesta is the bestselling car in the UK for a reason, and arguably the best car Ford produces. It's cheap to run, extremely reliable, looks great, and is one of the safest cars on the road.Discover
We've carefully chosen cars from leading manufacturers, specifically with young drivers' needs in mind - so you're able to find a selection of the best first cars, all in one place.
We're proud to offer a year's free insurance* on most models! Where we can't offer free insurance, we'll offer discounted insurance or cashback, easing things in that expensive first year of driving.
To make things more affordable, we have a range finance options. Not 18 yet? No problem! You can still make the most of our fantastic offers, you'll just need a parent or guardian to apply for finance on your behalf!
Once you've chosen your car and completed your finance agreement, all you need to do is wait for delivery day (we'll get it to you as quickly as we can!), add fuel, and enjoy being the open road in your first car!
This handy checklist should be at the forefront of your mind, when it comes to buying your first car - no matter where it's from!
Looking for a car in a low insurance group will help to make running your first car more affordable. You can ease the cost of insurance with a black box policy.
Road tax rules changed in April 2017, so check out how much tax your new wheels will cost. Don't forget that our brand new Cars for Young Drivers all come with the first year's tax paid for!
Have a look at the MPG figures for the cars you're considering to help you work out the running costs you're likely to pay. Newer cars tend to be more fuel efficient, saving you money at the pumps – but think about how and where you drive, as some cars are better suited to short urban drives, and some perform well on long journeys.
Safety is important, so it's worth checking out your chosen car's NCAP safety rating between 1 and 5 stars – look for customer reviews too, and see what real drivers are saying about their car!
