So it's nearly time to leave school and join the rest of sociality on the road. Might sound scary to some and exciting to others.

And amongst all the struggles and excitement, take into consideration to be responsible!

So you need to make sure you get yourself a realiable, cost-effective and light on petrol run-around.

Let's take you through some of the basics to buying your freedom ;)



You should consider a few things before you jump into the biggest step of freedom. Look at what your budget is. Way up your options if buying a car will save you a lot of money than taking public transport to a school far away. Perhaps it is time to invest in a car to travel with.

We understand that as a student, money is almost nonexistant, so it is very important to possibly work a job in order to get finance approved or get your parents to buy your car for you. Shop around to find the best value for your money.
