Want to Drive an Audi? Here's What You'll Have to Do First

Behind the wheel of an Audi

Some of us know what kind of car we’d like to drive long before we’re even old enough to apply for a license and start driving lessons. Some of us will drive different makes and models for years before deciding that they aren’t for us and that something else might suit us a little better. Either way, if you’re interested in driving an Audi, the following tips should help you along the way...

Pass Your Test

First things first, you’re going to have to pass your test. This is something that you have to do to drive any vehicle unsupervised on public roads. You’re going to have to study to familiarize yourself with the rules of the road. You’re also going to have to take practical lessons to get to grips with handling a vehicle. Then you have to pass the driving test itself to prove that you are competent on the roads. If you’d like to know more about this process, check out this article.

Conduct a Little Research Into Different Models

Once you’ve passed your test, you can officially begin your journey towards getting behind the wheel of an Audi. If you’ve set your heart on the make of car, you still have a lot of decisions to carry out in regards to which model you want to purchase. There are hatchbacks, saloons, coupes, and 4 x 4s. Each model will vary greatly in what it offers to you as an owner and a driver. Make a list of your needs and determine which will suit you best. Factors that you might want to take into account include:

* Size
* Cost
* Safety
* Handling

Once you’ve ensured that the vehicle suits your basic needs, you can focus on aesthetics or additional luxury features.

Book a Test Drive

When you’ve managed to whittle down your options, you can browse what’s available in your local area. You might want to buy a brand new car from a dealership. You could also purchase a second-hand vehicle from a private seller. Either way, it’s extremely important that you conduct a test drive.

Test drives allow you to get a feel for the vehicle. Some people set their heart on a particular model only to find that when they actually give it a go, it isn’t quite for them. Test driving a second-hand vehicle is particularly important as it will allow you to see whether or not the vehicle is in proper working order.

Strike a Deal

Found the vehicle that you like? It’s time to strike a deal. Some brand new cars have set prices attached, but it’s always worth trying to get a better offer. Haggling is generally expected when buying a secondhand vehicle. Many sellers accommodate for this by listing their vehicles at a price that is slightly higher than what they genuinely want or expect from a buyer.

Following the above steps should help you get behind the wheel of an Audi in next to no time. Here are more tips when buying a used Audi.
