Why you can trust us – How we fact-check

On this page

Updated: June 2024

At Young Car Driver, we’re committed to ensuring the information we provide is accurate, up-to-date, and trustworthy. In other words, it’s everything you need to make great financial decisions.

We source our information from primary sources. This means we go to the original data source rather than another publication’s interpretation of that data. For example, we’ll get our facts direct from the DVLA rather than a newspaper article that refers to the DVLA.

Regular updates

Once our content is published, we regularly revisit it to ensure it remains up-to-date and includes all the latest information. We also go back to our original sources to ensure we’ve got our facts straight and our content keeps up with new legislation. You can see when each piece of content was last reviewed by looking at the ‘published’ or ‘recently updated’ date.

Double-checking the details

Each piece of content, whether written by our in-house experts or a specialist guest author, will be reviewed again by our team before we hit publish. We consider guidance from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) to ensure we remain unbiased, and we’ve written with your needs in mind.

While we work hard to ensure our information is accurate, we recommend you check the small print on the finance agreement or insurance policy you’re considering buying before making a decision.
