Get Pre-Approved for a Used Vehicle Online

Buying a car in Canada has never been easier. With Canada Drives you can get pre-approved for a car loan online and get connected with a local dealership in your area who will provide you with a selection of vehicles to choose from that you already qualify for!

If you’ve never bought a car before (or not in a long time), you might be wondering where your car buying journey should begin.

Many Canadians admit that the traditional way of car buying—one that entails a lot of time in a car dealership negotiating, preparing documents, filling out paperwork, and scheduling test drives—is not very convenient.

It is not uncommon for Canadians to visit multiple dealerships before deciding on a specific vehicle, and then they start the process of applying for financing. Unfortunately the financing decision is not always a 'Yes'. There is a very real chance that you could get denied for financing, forcing you to start the entire search process from the start. A huge waste of time!

That's where Canada Drives comes in.
