First Time Drivers
As parents of young drivers ourselves, we fully understand and appreciate how much of a challenge it can be in choosing a suitable first car together with the inevitable anxiety when the time comes for our children to want the independence that owning a car brings with it.
You both need to be satisfied that the car is:
The car must be mechanically sound - a full service history and new MOT is the only acceptable evidence of this.
NOT A PREVIOUSLY RECORDED WRITE OFF!
Sometimes referred to as the HPI Check - this is a valuable report that in addition to confirming a vehicles history - in particular if the car was previously written off for insurance purposes and subsequently re-commissioned also confirms that the car has no outstanding finance against it.
The car must be suitable in terms of running costs - including the dreaded insurance premiums.
COVERED BY A GREAT AFTER SALES PACKAGE!
Despite ensuring through a vehicles history and its inspection prior to sale, a car is a machine like any other - they can and occasionally do let us all down.
A good warranty is a must have as far as we are concerned - please read our section describing the warranty we provide via Warranty Wise.
Not only are our warranties worth the paper they are written on but they also include AA Roadside Assistance.
and lastly -
VALUE FOR MONEY!
Without doubt it has to be and that is why we strive to price every car we sell competitively.
Of course - all of the above applies to everything we do at Oakley Car Sales, not just 1st time drivers but we want to be part of welcoming 1st time drivers to the world of motoring and ensure that their first experience of buying and owning a first car is a positive experience.
