When to buy a car
If you are unsure on when to buy a car, we would advise to buy a car while you are learning as you can get lots of practice in and you will be on provisional insurance which is cheaper. If you join a finance contract you can build up your ‘no claims’ which could decrease your insurance. Paying monthly for your car can also build your credit score up.
If you are unsure on whether to buy a car as you are not sure on your progress, just ask your instructor for some advice. There are lots of places and websites that can help you decide on which car would be best for you. A lot of pupils find that buying a car while they are learning helps them progress a massive amount and can sometimes be a big milestone for their progress. At the end of the day, it is your money and if you want to buy a car to practice in you should go for it!
Firstly, when applying for your provisional licence make sure you either get your form from the post office or if you go online be sure you are on the official government website. There are some official sounding third party companies that will submit the application form for you but will charge you a fee.
