Choose a car

There are questions you need to ask yourself before you buy a car, such as how much can you spend, how much will the insurance cost and what are the running costs? Make sure that you also check that the vehicle you’re thinking of buying hasn’t been reported stolen, involved in a crash or is still subject to finance.

Find an instructor

Anyone who charges you for lessons must be approved and registered with the Driving Standards Agency. Although friends and family can help you learn to drive they are not usually a good substitute for a professional instructor whose job is to coach people through their driving test.

Passing your test?

The better prepared you are for your test, the easier it will be to pass – there are many factors involved that can make the learning to drive process easier and give you the best chance of passing the practical driving test first time round. Find out what to expect and get yourself ready.

Security aware

Your new car is your pride and joy, so why make it easy for thieves to steal it or the items inside it? Keep everything locked and out of sight. As well as reducing the chance of your car being stolen, all improvements to the security of your car should help to lower your insurance premium.

Your MOT
