When you’re a new driver, it can be difficult to remember everything you’ve learnt and apply it to different situations. The good news is, the more that you drive the easier things will become. Motoring costs can be a bit of a nightmare and so opting for a used car is a great idea for your first vehicle. Companies such as Direct Car Credit have some nice deals on used cars, plus some great finance options.

When you’re choosing your first car, set yourself a budget and also factor in your insurance costs. As a new driver it can be handy to get a black box for your car. A black box monitors the way you drive, and if you prove yourself to be a responsible driver, you can get a better insurance deal.
