    The importance of doing a safety check when purchasing your first car


    It’s essential to carry out a safety check when purchasing your first car. Many people ask their parents or other experienced drivers to help them check cars over before they make a purchase. Read on for advice about buying your first car and avoiding investing in a vehicle that might cause an accident.

    Checks to make when purchasing your first car

    Always ask as many questions as you feel you need to before purchasing your first car. View the car in dry and light conditions so faults can’t be masked by moisture or darkness. The more you can find out about the car’s history, the better. Ask to see MOT certificates and other documents and never allow yourself to be rushed into a decision. You should always go for a test drive before you purchase a car so you can see how it handles. It could be wise to get a mechanic that doesn’t work for the dealer or seller in question to check the car over as they will know what to look for. If something doesn’t seem right to you, it may be best to turn your back on the car or even the dealership or seller themselves and look elsewhere.

    Accident Advice Helpline can assist you and help you get compensation if you ever are in a car accident and it isn’t your fault.
