How to run your car cheaply as a young driver

As a new driver who’s just passed after taking their test at a driving school in Leicester, there’s so much to remember about staying safe on the roads. However, the other thing to bear in mind is cost, as after all, owning and maintaining a car is one of the most expensive outgoings for a lot of people

Fuelling up costs

At some point you’re going to have to fill up your car and this can be surprisingly expensive. Keep costs low by driving carefully, as simply slowing your acceleration down can make a big difference. If you’re yet to buy your first car then bear in mind that the bigger the engine, the more fuel your car is going to require. Shop around, as many supermarkets offer great deals and the more you buy, the more discount you’ll receive next time.

Depreciation
It’s important to be aware that the car you buy won’t be worth as much as you paid for it forever, and one of the best ways of maintaining value is by looking after it; have a secure anti-theft system installed and drive safely at all times.

If you keep these pointers in mind you’ll be well on your way to low-cost driving.
