Credit Score & Credit History

Have you been wondering how to start the process of getting a car loan? In general, qualifying for a car loan is much easier when you have good credit. Lenders are also more likely to give better rates to those with good credit history as these individuals have proven that they are able to pay off bills and loans on time. But keep in mind that “good” credit may be subjective depending on the lender; additionally, there are plenty of lenders willing to work with those who have less than perfect credit! If you are applying for a car loan with bad credit, it can be helpful to find a co-signer for the loan (however, the co-signer might need to accept a higher APR).

What Do I Need to Qualify for a Car Loan?

Now that we’ve discussed credit, let’s talk about what you need to qualify for a car loan. Regardless of your credit score and credit history, lends will need the following from you when you apply for a loan:

  • Proof of Income: Your lender will need for you to prove your income in order to grant you a loan. Typically either bank statements or pay stubs will work just fine here.
  • Proof of Insurance: Because insurance is required by law, it’s required in order to get an auto loan. You can either purchase insurance ahead of time or ask your dealership if you can purchase it on-site.
  • Proof of Residence: In order to provide proof of residence, all you need to do is a current utility bill.
  • Identification: Be sure to bring adequate identification when you apply for a car loan. Photo ID is required, but you often need to show multiple forms of ID. Some examples include a current utility bill in your name or current bank statements with an address that matches the one on your ID.
