How to Qualify for a Car Loan

If you want to know, “What do I need to qualify for a car loan?” read on. In terms of qualifying for a car loan, you’ll need to provide the following items to the finance center:

  • Proof of Income: You’ll need to provide proof of your income, so the lender has confidence that you’ll be able to make the payments according to the terms of the contract. In most cases, bank statements or your pay stubs are sufficient, but in some cases, a lender may wish to contact your employer. 
  • Proof of Insurance: Insurance is required by law and required to get a vehicle loan. You can normally purchase insurance at the dealership or just call your insurance agent when you’re ready to purchase a car.
  • Identification: You must be able to prove that you are who you say you are and sometimes a photo ID isn’t sufficient. You may be asked to provide corroborating documents such as a current utility bill in your name or recent bank statements with an address that match the one on your ID.
  • Proof of Residence: Lenders need to feel sure that they can locate you if needed. A current utility bill will generally be adequate proof of your address. Additionally, if you’re trading in your old car to help finance your purchase, you’ll need that vehicle’s title and registration so you can prove ownership of the vehicle.
