However, at Get Car Finance Here, we find the right deals for new drivers to take the stress out of financing your car.

Young Driver Car Finance Advantages
There are a number of advantages to purchasing your car on finance. First of all, you do not need to pay a huge lump sum of money; instead, you can pay for your car in manageable monthly instalments. This can be particularly useful for first-time car buyers who will most likely be paying premium insurance and are not yet accustomed to the financial implications of owning a car.
Is Leasing suitable for my my first car?
In most cases, yes! Leasing is a popular form of finance for new motorists because it’s an affordable and flexible way to start driving.
With insurance premiums on the rise, cutting down on unnecessary costs is vital, especially for young drivers.
There are a number of ways to lease your first car. Most involve you paying a deposit followed by a series of monthly payments over an agreed period. At the end of the agreement, you usually have the option of handing the car back or making a final payment to take ownership of the vehicle.
At GetCarFinanceHere, we know that not everyone has the means to lay down a significant deposit so we have a number of payment options available - everyone considered, no matter your circumstances!
Choosing a finance deal with us means that you could get a vehicle that exceeds the expectations that you initially had for your first car. Ultimately, you can get a car that is higher in value because you do not need to pay a lump sum. Furthermore, we have a range of second hand cars available on finance if you would like a more economical choice of first car.
What are the best cars for young drivers?
Small, efficient hatchbacks are a practical option when choosing your first car. Not only will your car be cheaper to run, but the cost of your insurance will also be relatively low when compared with other vehicles.
At GCFH we can help you secure car finance for a wide range of models that are ideal for first time drivers, such as;

8 Tips For Students & Young Professionals Looking For Their First Car
<pHere's a quick run down of our top advice for students to help you get the best auto finance package possible:
Use A Guarantor To Cosign
If you don’t have any past credit history (such as a mobile phone contract), it may be more difficult to be accepted for car finance. However, if you have a guarantor to vouch for you, in many cases Get Car Finance Here will still be able to help you finance your dream car.
A guarantor is a member of your family, or a friend, who agrees to cover your loan if you are unable to pay it. They will simply have to fill in some forms to cosign your finance agreement.
Build A Good Credit Rating & Refinance With GCFH
By opting for a car finance solution, you will build up your credit score thanks to the regular payments you will make. On top of this, with Get Car Finance Here you can refinance your car using terms that are specific to your changing financial circumstances further down the line!
Develop A Stable, Regular Income
As soon as your income is steady, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to build your credit rating from poor to great.
A bad credit rating (anything below Fair) may impact your ability to be financed on a car at 18, however we work with lenders that specialise in bad credit car finance so we could still find the perfect finance deal for you.
Get Black Box Car Insurance & Pay Annually
Black box car insurance has become a hugely popular option for many young drivers who are looking to get their first car. The ‘black box’ device monitors numerous aspects of your driving performance, such as speed, distance travelled, braking and more. Having an installed black box can reduce the price of your insurance, and providing you keep up repayments, it’s an affordable way for young drivers to finance their vehicle.
Often overlooked, buying a car without first checking the cost of insuring could give you an unwanted surprise! As of 2018, annual premiums for 18-20 year old drivers have risen to an average of £973 - that’s usually just as much as paying off the motor over the year! Checking insurance quotes to help you choose the right model can result in huge savings.
Help drive quotes down by adding named drivers and reducing annual mileage when filling in details. Another tip for wrangling the lowest young driver car insurance is to pay it annually as opposed to monthly - in fact you can save up to 20%.
