First time drivers 

It is completely up to you when you wish to buy your first car. Some wait till after they’ve passed their test, some people get one before they start their lessons. Either way it may be best to get an inexpensive car for your first car as it will be more affordable if you damage it in any way. There’s not much point splashing out on a fancy car as a first-time buyer. However, you do want the car to suit a certain criteria. When looking for your first car, you should look for the following features:  

  • Cheap to run 

  • Not too powerful 

  • Easy to manoeuvre 

  • Packed with safety kit 

  • Has a low insurance rating 

  • Some Insurance companies that can fit in a black box recorder to monitor your driving which helps to reduce your insurance 

  • Look for a car with light steering (easy steering) 

  • Large windows (see clearer)  

All of these cars below suit these criteria, here are the top 10 cars for first time drivers to give you an idea on what sort of cars you may want.
