How To Pass Your Driving Test

Pass Your Driving Test

Learning to drive is a mile stone in life. The day that you pass your driving test will be one you remember for ever.

Once you have your full driving licence, you will have a previously unknown freedom. Driving isn’t without its issues. New drivers face huge costs, first to buy a car and then, possibly an even bigger cost to insure their first car.

Insurance is often the biggest cost in the first few years as new drivers are considered to be a high risk for insurance companies.

You can reduce your insurance costs by installing a black box in your car. This will monitor your driving and reward of penalise you for good or bad driving. It is a great tool for parents to help to keep their children safe when they are first driving.

You won’t be able to speed, and often are limited to the hours or times of day when you can drive.

Insurance companies will reduce your insurance cost if you score well for safe driving and increase your bills if you drive too fast, or late at night etc.

We have heard of one parent who bought a new, ex-demo car for their child because the garage was offering 2 years free insurance.

The car was £8k, and the insurance quoted was £3k in year one and £1,500 in year two. So their child got a new car to drive around in, and half the purchase cost was offset against insurance. This actually made it a cheap first car. (assuming you can afford the purchase cost of course).
