I’m A Teenager, Can I Lease A Car From Flexed?
If you’re a young driver still in your teens and you’ve just passed your driving test (congratulations!), you might be wondering whether leasing a new car rather than buying a second hand one is the best option and if leasing a car is even something you can do.
At Flexed, we specialise in short term car leases that are available to anyone over the age of 18 and who holds a full, valid UK driving licence. You must also be able to prove you can afford to make the monthly payments and show that you’re eligible for vehicle finance.
We also welcome new/young driver’s who are interested in short term car leasing but hold a non-GB driving licence and are a resident of Great Britain. We’re happy to accept your licence with the following conditions – please click here to read more.
No matter what age you are, every one of our customers must be credit checked to ensure they are eligible for vehicle finance and show us that they can afford to take on a lease contract and keep up with the monthly payments.
If you have concerns about your credit rating because you’re too young to have been able to build up a good enough credit history yet, please don’t be disheartened, as we’ll consider every option to get you through the process. In some instances, we may ask for a refundable deposit to support your application. This will be refunded back to you in full at the end of your lease – as long as no outstanding charges occur during the lease period!
Here at Flexed, we have our own in-house finance department who deals with every application, so if you’re worried about your credit rating, ‘good credit’ isn’t always a necessity with us. We look at each application individually and will consider every option to get you through the process successfully.
Because you’re entering into a legal contract between yourself and the registered vehicle keeper (the lease company), it’s important that we conduct an affordability check to determine whether short term leasing is right for you.
Checks are carried out to verify your identity and address, as well as taking into account your income & expenditure. A decision is normally made within 24 hours (weekdays).
Once you’ve been approved for vehicle leasing, an account will be opened up for you and you’re then ready to choose the lease car you want to drive.
Ideal Cars For Teenagers
At Flexed, we have a wide range of lease cars to choose from that would be ideal for new/young drivers in their teens – visit our ‘All Vehicles’ page on the Flexed website to see what type of car you could be driving, with prices starting from as little as £299.99 excl. VAT per month.
Many of the cars we have available to lease are in stock at point of order, so you could be driving away or taking delivery of your new lease car within a matter of days!
All of our cars available to lease are less than 12 months old, with 90% of those being less than 6 months old. Our vehicles are maintained regularly, ensuring they’re safe and ready to lease – that’s why as a young driver, it’s much better to lease a new car from us rather than buying another person’s old car that you don’t know the history of.
Also included within your 28 day rental is:
- UK Road Tax
- Breakdown Cover
- Manufacturer Warranty
- Vehicle Maintenance
- 1,250 Miles a Month (additional mileages available)
- Fast Turnaround for New Vehicles (pickup or collection)
