Having a car is not considered to be a luxury, more like a necessity. As the road networks are becoming more connected and the use of public transport is declining, most of us will need a car to get to work, do our shopping, and take the kids to school. Cars, however, can be expensive if you don’t pay attention to them, so make sure that you review the following areas regularly to reduce your motoring budget for years to come.
Buying a car can be a difficult proposition for a lot of people. Not least because it often involves a pretty sizeable financial commitment. This is often made especially frustrating because, if you’re buying a car, then it’s probably not because you decided to treat yourself, there’s a pretty solid chance that, if you’re putting down a large sum of money on a car, you’re doing so out of necessity.
Passing your driving test is one of the most incredible feelings, after months (or sometimes years!) of practice and hard work you finally get to reap the rewards. Being able to drive gives you such independence, no longer do you need to rely on friends or family for lifts, fork out on taxis or ubers or wait around on unreliable public transport.
With a license and your own car, you can go where you want, when you want. However it’s not easy for new drivers, and passing your test is just the start.
