#JustPassed New Driver Guide


Welcome to the Second Edition of The Motor Ombudsman’s #JustPassed New Driver Guide. Launched in 2017, the digital quick reference booklet has been designed for new drivers to provide useful information and handy tips when buying, servicing and repairing a car.


It touches on subjects, such as:


  • Buying an electric or hybrid model;
  • Sourcing a car online;
  • Going on a test drive; and
  • Towing a vehicle.

There are equally some handy checklists at the back of the guide for key factors to consider prior to signing on the dotted line.


The Second Edition, which can be viewed by clicking on the image below, features new animations and graphics, as well as integrated links to information on The Motor Ombudsman’s website (TheMotorOmbudsman.org) and on sites of other motoring organisations.
