Here at Nationwide Vehicle Contracts, we have a great range of brand-new reliable vehicles ideal for young and first-time drivers, with many available for under £200 a month. Take a look at some of the best cars for new drivers and popular choices below.

In order to lease a vehicle with Nationwide Vehicle Contracts, you will need to be over 18 years old and hold a full UK driving licence. There is no upper limit on car leasing with us.
As part of the leasing process, you will need to undergo a credit check as part of the finance application. Many younger drivers will have little to no credit history which will make car leasing for new drivers tough.
If you have no credit history, working to establish a positive credit history is important. You can do this by opening and managing a bank account, using direct debits to pay bills like mobile phone contracts, and registering to vote in the UK.
