Buying a Car
It is exciting buying your first car, but it can also be confusing. Here are some top tips that we hope will help you through that first purchase:
How do I know if the car I am buying isn’t stolen or been written off? There are many sites that will check this, most will charge so make sure it is a car you really want!
You can visit https://www.theaa.com/vehicle-check amongst others to check the car’s history
Make sure to check the paperwork for the car, make sure it has a current MOT. You can register with the GOV UK website once you have bought the car to get MOT reminders.
You will need to tax your new car, this can be done online.
You will need to register the car in your name and at your address.
