I passed my test just last month and am currently 17 and will be 18 next month. I'm dying to get a car since I've passed. Unfortunately my parents do not drive so they obviously don't have a car. My Mum really wants me to be safe and get a good car that will not break down hopefully and I was sorta planning to ignore this however I have seen a good deal on a car.
I found this website http://www.wearemarmalade.co.uk/cars-for-young-drivers
it gives tyou a car with insurance and i wouyld be £190 a month and I could actually afford this though obviously i would need to wait till I'm 18. Is it a good idea. I think it is because it's affordable, has lots of safety features to keep the mother happy. What do you's think?

I wouldn't go through these sites but if you really want to do it look at reviews for this company first of all. Just get a 10 year old car cost around £800 and get insurance say it would be around £1000 easier than the hassle I would say.

I think that website works for some but not for others. You need to consider how long the contract is for, what the mileage limits are, what kind of car you're getting, whether you're happy to pay all that money and not actually own anything unless you pay the final payment at the end (remembering the car will be worth a lot less), and how likely your circumstances will change in the interim. If you're sure, then go for it. If not then you'll probably be better off saving for a few months and buying an older car outright.
