Our Best 5 Cars For New Drivers To Lease

Short Term Leases for First-Time Drivers Both Young & Old


Have you or someone you know just passed your driving test? If so, congratulations from all the team here at Flexed.

Of course, now the months of driving lessons are finally over it’s time to start thinking about what your very first car is going to be and despite the excitement involved, it can be a very stressful time as there’s plenty of things to bear in mind to ensure your first ever car is the right one for you.

Whether you’re a young person who’s just passed their driving test or someone who has waited until later in life to get behind the wheel, the very first car must deliver on the style front but more importantly, especially for young drivers, it must be easy to drive, affordable and cheap to run and also with the youngest of drivers, the cost of insurance is something to consider before jumping straight in.

Once over, the first-time driver normally had no other option but to go out and look for a used car to buy – not any more though, thanks to vehicle leasing because as long as you are aged over 18 years, hold a full valid UK driving license, can prove you can afford the monthly payments and pass a credit check, you can lease a new car from Flexed on a short term lease or long term rental.

You might be worried as a new young driver that you won’t have enough of a credit history to be eligible for vehicle leasing but here at Flexed, we look at each individual customer separately, with the option to add a refundable security amount that will sit on your account until your contract ends and will be refunded back to you at the end of your lease term – providing no outstanding charges occur during the lease.

So, great news all round, as you don’t have to risk losing your hard-earned cash on purchasing an old banger that might pack in one month later, plus you can lease a new, reliable car from Flexed.

Our short-term lease contracts also include UK road tax, manufacturer warranty, breakdown cover, vehicle maintenance, and 1,250 miles per month (additional mileages available). Also, if you’re a new driver over the age of 25, you might be eligible for our New Car Subscription service which includes Fully Comprehensive insurance cover as part of your contract – please click here to find out more and to see if you are eligible.

Driving a new lease car gives you and possibly your family if you’re a new young driver, peace of mind knowing the first-ever car you’ll be getting behind the wheel of is reliable, looked after thanks to vehicle maintenance being included within your contract, and affordable as the monthly payment includes everything to make driving your very first car super easy.

Here at Flexed, we have plenty of cars to lease that would be suitable for first-time drivers no matter what age. To help make the decision a little easier, we’ve compiled our very own Best 5 Cars For New Drivers list which includes some of the cheapest cars on the road today to lease, run and insure.
