About Us

YCDs goal is simple: to be there for the young driver.

What’s going on here?

Driving as a young driver is exciting, but it’s also intimidating.

There’s a huge amount to learn, and it seems impossible to find all the information you need in one place.

Frustrated by contradictory information and poor explanations, we decided to make a website specifically for young or inexperienced drivers.

That’s why we’ve launched Young Car Driver, the number one source for young and inexperienced drivers.

YCD is written for young adults. We don’t speak in jargon, and we give you straightforward answers to the big questions.

We’ve got guides to help you wherever you are in your driving journey, whether you’re still learning to drive, looking to buy, or you need some advice on maintaining your car.

One of the main motivations for YCD’s inception is the worrying rate of accidents in the 17-25 age range. We believe that by providing accurate and reliable information, we can help reduce that number.

Our motoring Guides

We’ve designed the website to be super simple.

YCD is divided into 6 free guides:

Learn: Full of information and advice about learning to drive.

Finance: Most of us can’t afford to buy a car outright. This guide tells you everything you need to know about car financing.

Insurance: A significant cost of driving, this guide will help you understand your insurance policy, and how to make a claim.

Buying: Looking for your first car can be a minefield. Our Buying section guides you through the process.

Owning: Car ownership is a big responsibility. Here, we show you exactly what you need to do to keep your car in good condition and keep yourself safe.

Driving: You’ll probably hear many people tell you that you only learn to drive when you pass your test. This guide will give you some tips on how to drive in the real world safely.

Services and products

Our partnered services and products are designed to give young drivers all of the knowledge and services that they need.

Part of what makes YCD so special is that it’s written by young drivers who know what you want to know.

We make sure that all the information on the site is fully up to date with the DVLA and DVSA.

We have FCA registration status, which allows us to build deep associations with car insurance and finance lenders. This means we can provide our customers with custom quotes on services and products – so you can get the best bang for your buck.
