Hi fellow clubsnappers,
just wondering ..is there any place where new class 3 drivers can rent cars from..checked with a few companies and they only allow holders of more than 1 or 2 years to rent their vehicles....
just another wonder, if these new drivers dun pratice driving for more than 1 or 2 years, by the time they can rent vehicles, wun they be more dangerous on the roads? just my 2 cents thoughts...... :bsmilie:

just pass, not much rental car company willingly to rent to you.
too much risk. minimum for car rental is 2years experience, lucky
if you can find one year experience requirement.

you have to find owners who's willingly to rent.

if u ask someone to rent for you,
n u drive. its illegal. kenna wack or accident.
its all from your pocket. (regardless u rite or wrong)
u pay for the damages for the rented car, n you pay for the person who bang u.

NS, in yr case, better to get a good 2nd car...preferably 1000cc, easy to drive...and boost yr confidence level. The used car market is extremely bad so I'm sure u can get a good deal.....some may even allow u to drive away without down-payment.
Pop by Automega-mart.....take yr time to select one or better still, buy from a friend/colleague.

New driver, almost sure to knock the car around, like bumper car.

I suggest to buy a car that is about to scrap so that even if you drive it like a bumber car, it is okay.

FYI my first car, the piller knock into me in about 2 weeks.
