Parent Guide

Driving lessons are expensive, and while instructors are passing on a skill for life, many parents just want to get their kids through their driving test as quickly and as cheaply as possible. That’s not ideal, but we’re a pragmatic bunch at FirstCar and we accept that if it’s going to happen, we might as well do our best to ensure it’s done as well as possible. That’s why we’ve come up with the Parent’s Edition of the Young Driver’s Guide.

Much smaller than anything we’ve ever produced before, this 24-page A6-sized booklet takes some of the key messages from the Young Driver’s Guide and presents them in a handy pocket-sized format. 



Topics covered include: 

  • Choosing the right instructor
  • Making driving lessons work
  • Preparing for the theory test
  • Preparing for the practical test
  • Post-test training
  • How insurance works
  • How to buy a car
  • The basics of car ownership
