Getting A Car In Your Twenties: What You Need To Know

Although a lot of us learn to drive once we got the golden age of 16-17, there are some of us who don’t jump on the bandwagon right away and we leave it until we are in our twenties. If you waited and didn’t rush into passing your test early then you likely have early some money in the years following and this can put you in a better position to buy the car you want. Here are some of our top tips for when you come to buy your first car.

Look around for a while

Take your time researching different cars and different companies who can offer you deals. It doesn’t make sense to rush buying a car because it will often be a big investment and you will want the car to last as long as possible before it burns out. Don’t be afraid to look at brand new cars because sometimes there are great offers and deals which will offer you a discount on your insurance and make everything easier for you to pay for. Be sure you know a little about the ins and outs of cars and what you are looking for.

Don’t worry about the make and model

When it comes to buying the first car you will ever drive, it is far too easy to become hung up on a certain make and model and not want anything other than this specific machine. The thing is, when you first have a car your insurance will be a lot higher than the following years, and when you are a new driver you are more likely to have an accident. It is much better to buy something small and simple and keep it for a couple of years until you are ready to upgrade to something better.

Compare insurance

The biggest cost a lot of the time when we buy a first car is the insurance, and when it comes to finding the right policy things can get pretty confusing. There are a lot of factors, jargon and things to think about when choosing a policy which is why you should always check on somewhere like to find the cheapest deals you can for yourself. It is also always worth you asking advice from other friends or parents to see what they think will be the best for you.

Get a black box

A black box is a decide which we often associate with planes and it is a device which usually records the flight path, speed and conversations in the cockpit. However for your car, a black box monitors how safely your drive and uses this information to lower your insurance premium. Agreeing to have a black box can save you a lot of money and it is definitely worth doing, just make sure you always drive safe and at the speed limit!
