Owning a car before you’ve passed your driving test is beneficial in many ways. It’s helpful for those who wish to practice in what they will be driving once they’ve passed their test. Choosing your first car can be daunting for some, since it’s something you haven’t done before.
We’ve decided to do some research into which car comes out on top for learner drivers based on not only popularity but practicality.
Vauxhall Corsa (2007-2014)
A favourite of both young drivers and driving instructors, the Corsa range features a large amount of models and are often labelled as fantastic value for money. Easy to insure, reliable and a great first car.
Nissan Micra (2003 -2010)
Renault Clio (2005-2012)
Ford Fiesta (2008-2017)
Toyota Yaris (2006-2011)
The small and nimble Yaris with precise steering makes emerging from junctions and cornering easy! Some of the later models include a navigation system called Touch, which makes parking a little less painful, which is always a bonus for new drivers.
These are just a few of the most suitable cars for learner drivers. There are many to choose from, but the you should prioritise looking for a car that is going to allow you to be the best driver that you can be.
Already own your own car? We offer both temporary and annual learner policies for learner driver owners.
