Gaining Some Independence for me | Buying A Car

*Sponsored Post*

As some of you may already know as i have spoken about this topic in my weekly vlogs-i have taken the plunge and have found a driving instructor local to me and have booked some lessons. It has been long over due and very much needed. With being on maternity leave and being the sole carer for the children , i truly believe having your driving license is really an essential these days and especially when we hit the horrid winter.



This being said, there are so many things to think about when it comes to passing your test. The most obvious is a car, but most importantly is a safe car.Now myself and Scott both work, but when it comes to buying a brand new car, it is something, unfortunately, we are unable to do. I have been car hunting over the last few months as we have both agreed if we find the right car for me at the right price then we will purchase it now.




There are so many different resources out there you can turn to for that little bit of knowledge when it comes to cars and car safety and even car seat safety if you have a little newborn like us- cars.com have some really helpful information on their site, from selling and trading to services and repairs, they have it all covered.

So if your struggling for some advice out there or a fresh learner like me then go and check them out and let me know what you think :)

  1. A year ago I was involved in a serious car crash, so the importance of car safety is paramount to me. It should never be overlooked!

  3. Like with all big buys doing extensive research before buying a car really pays off so Cars.com sounds like a really useful resource!

  6. It is good to do research about what kind of car you are looking for before you buy. So many beautiful cars out there you could easily come back with one that you did not need. I would love a Mini :)
