Roadmap of the first milestones of your car

Getting a driver’s license comes with a list of first experiences

You are the proud owner of a car for the first time after getting your driver’s licence, so what now? On your journey to becoming an experienced driver, there are a few milestones you can look forward to as a new driver.

Here’s a roadmap of those “firsts”:

The road begins at car insurance 

First stop – before you take your car on its maiden voyage, you’ll need to get comprehensive car insurance. As a new driver, anything can happen to your newest asset on the roads and safeguarding it is the best way to ensure you can enjoy it for many years to come. It is understandable if you are not sure where to start, but there are a few options. You can buy vehicle insurance online, get a sales representative to call you for a quote and to answer any questions you might have. Now, with the serious bit out of the way, it’s on to the fun stuff.

Set the tone with a playlist 

Whether it is brand new or second-hand, as you drive your new wheels off the showroom floor, you might have a nagging feeling that something is missing. That’s it! It’s time to replace the purr of your new engine with some music. Before you set off on your journey, tune your stereo system to the obligatory “driving” playlist which you meticulously put together the night before in anticipation for this very moment. And so begins the theme song of your life, queue Drive slow by Kanye West.

Next stop, the spectators 

Because no occasion would be complete without an audience, it’s time to fetch your friends – since, as far as experiences are concerned, “It didn’t happen if nobody saw it”. Complete the moment with loads of selfies posted to social media – but please, don’t take selfies while driving!

It’s time to grab a bite to eat 

After a long ride, it’s time to pick up some provisions. Head to the local drive-through for some burgers and chips As the path snakes towards the order window, you can’t help but feel your stomach tense, and you can hear the collective sigh of relief as the road straightens out and you pick up your order without incident (phew)! Once that’s done, it’s time to head home to enjoy your meal – obviously no one is eating a greasy burger in your new ride’s spotless interior.

In the end, take a trip to the carwash 

It’s time to give thanks to your car for its hard work through all of these milestones. And what better way to show appreciation than with another new experience? It’s time to head to the car wash to give your baby the royal treatment.

These accomplishments are all part of the journey and moments in time that will become memories you can share in the future – cheers to the many first moments to come on your journey to live your way.
