About Young Car Driver

Updated: July 2024

Who is Young Car Driver?

We are Young Car Driver, a car insurance and car finance comparison site born in 2014 that is now dedicated to young drivers in the UK. But we are much, much more. We are the place young drivers can visit to get answers to their motoring concerns.

Ready for some great news? Our service is entirely free. You won’t pay anything to use it.

Our mission and values

We offer choice, control, and low-cost options for young car buyers and owners.

We make it easy for you to compare finance and insurance for your pride and joy.

We are the clued-up-friend you can trust to tell it like it is. We partner with the best in the business to help you find the best deals for your circumstances.

There’s no sugar coating, no false promises, no jargon, and no judgment; just straightforward, honest guides designed to give you the information you need to make great decisions.

Whether you’re a young driver buying your first car or looking for lower insurance, Young Car Driver is here to help.

Our values

  • Honesty above everything
    We believe the only good advice is honest advice; our guides always prioritise telling you the truth, even if it hurts. If a car is out of your budget or an insurance option won’t work for you, we’ll let you know.
  • Budget-conscious solutions
    Let’s face it, money matters. Your dream car, kitted out with every imaginable accessory, won’t feel so dreamy if it sends you into unmanageable debt. We’ll share the knowledge you need to make informed decisions that won’t break the bank.
  • Judgement-free support
    Whether you’ve missed payments in the past and now have a credit score that needs some work, or you’ve been in a scrape or two that has pushed up your insurance premium, we’re here to lend a sympathetic ear and practical advice. After all, we’ve all been there.
  • Always fair
    Prioritising fairness means we won’t overpromise, mislead you on the costs of car ownership, or push one finance option above any other. You’re one-of-a-kind, and the right deal for you will be as unique as you are. No matter what you choose, we’ll provide the same five-star service.
  • Choice and control for everyone
    By working with 18 car finance lenders and over 110 insurers, we can help young drivers of all circumstances find finance and insurance deals. That includes young people with bad credit or a limited budget. Young drivers can apply for a no-obligation quote and get a decision in minutes with Young Car Driver.
