Passing your driving test and buying your first car are two of the most exciting things that happen to you when you’re young. But without the experience of researching and buying cars, finding that perfect first car can sometimes feel a little overwhelming and tricky.
Firstly, do you go for a brand new car or a used car? Both options have their advantages and disadvantages.
When you choose a new car, many come with insurance offers too. There are also the practicalities of reliability and ease of driving (no quirks that can be common in used cars). On the other hand, some people are attracted to used cars due to the price and the fact that it’s used so it doesn’t matter so much if it gets the odd scrape.
It’s also worth bearing in mind that there are costs when buying a car that you simply can’t avoid, these include car insurance, car tax, MOT test, fuel and tyres. So you should remember to work these costs into your budget.
