Car leasing for new drivers.
Choosing your first car is an exciting (and sometimes long-awaited) moment. For those of us wanting to jump straight into a new car, leasing can be one of the most simple and affordable ways of doing so. This is not only the case for new drivers, but for motorists of all ages and experience levels.
Naturally, as it is a financial product, there are certain restrictions that mean car leasing is not suitable for all new drivers. Read on to learn the pros and cons of car leasing if you are a new driver.
Why is leasing good for new drivers?
- Less adjustment from your learner car
- Benefit from newer technology and safety features
- Save stress and repair costs - warranty and breakdown cover included
- No MOT for three years
- Change your car regularly
- No deposit options
- Drive greener
- Easy budgeting
If you've taken professional driving lessons you are likely to have learned to drive in a new or nearly new car. Making the adjustment to an older car can therefore be tricky: whether this is due to technology, comfort or simply the feel of the drive.
Lease a new car and reduce the disparity from the one you learned in and the required adjustment as a result. If you're used to automatic headlights and wipers, advanced driving assistance technology or seemingly small things like parking or hill start assist features and do not opt for a new car with comparative capabilities, we recommend driving with a qualified passenger until you are fully accustomed to your chosen car.
There is plenty to get to grips with as a new driver, so don't add mechanical faults or breakdowns to the list. Leasing a new car means you can benefit from the reliability inseparable from a brand new car with no previous owners. Plus, breakdown cover and standard manufacturer warranty is included in the unlikely event that something does go wrong.
