First Cars: The Best Cars For New Drivers
Everybody remembers their first car and lets be honest, the majority of first cars were not that good (apart from that one person whose parents bought them a brand new first car… No I am not bitter at all!). Getting an old banger of a car (sorry, ‘vintage’ I think it’s called these days) seems to be a thing of the past thanks to companies such as Marmalade or Peugeot’s ‘Just Add Fuel’ scheme. These companies offer cheap finance options for new drivers to ensure they can have their first car shortly after passing their driving test. However, even with these types of initiatives there is still one small stumbling block… the dreaded insurance.
It was recently announced that drivers could be hit with an increase of £1000 on car insurance. We are in an era where car insurance is already extremely expensive for new drivers and unfortunately it is only going to increase. At Tyre Shopper, we know how important it is to be safe on the road. Owning your first car is not just about being able to drive all your friends to McDonald’s on your lunch breaks (well, it’s a big factor but not the only factor), it is also about taking ownership and pride for something, possibly the most valuable asset you may have ever owned.
We know that it’s hard being a new driver and not being able to afford your first car. Because of this, we have come up with a definitive list of affordable first cars for new drivers. All of these cars are in ‘Group 1’ car insurance. This means they cost the least to insure, making them the perfect first car for new drivers.
