Whether you passed 1st time or 21st time, we salute you for finally going from a green to a pink driving license! The world is your oyster, you just need to get a set of wheels...but which car is the best for you? 

Of course, it’s down to you which car you buy but we’ve pulled together some of our best used cars for first time drivers! 

Buying your first car can be daunting, so check out these tips to keep in mind when looking for your first car.

  • Reliable dealership - when buying your first used car, you want to ensure the car is in good condition and has had the correct checks to make sure its safe. Approved used vehicles are the ones to look out for, as that means they have been thoroughly checked by trained technicians, plus they come with a 2 year guarantee* 
  • Good size - ideally you want a car that has enough room to fit all of your friends in when you begin driving them around, but you still want a fairly small car as your first, to make manoeuvring in/out of spaces as easy as possible. We suggest getting a car no bigger than the car you learnt to drive in. 
  • Set your budget - a great way to stop yourself getting carried away when looking for cars, is to note what you are willing to spend, and stick to it. Ask to see the cars at your budget and under. 
  • Economical - ensure that you ask what the cars fuel consumption is like, as last thing you want is to find your perfect first car, and find your spending hundreds on its fuel!
  • Insurance - before you make any commitments, check out some insurance quotes to find out how much you will spending to insure your car.
