The cost of a car: a lesson to prepare pupils for owning a car
This one hour lesson is designed to stimulate discussion and educate young people on the realistic cost of owning a car. The lesson looks at the cost of brand new cars, insurance, Vehicle Excise Duty and fuel. The lesson would work well with groups allowing for a little competition with some activities.

There is a strong maths link, with pupils required to work out the cost of different aspects of owning a car.

The lesson plan includes alternative activities should time and space allow.
