Kenneth got his first car with no credit:

"Employees were very polite, patient and professional. As a first-time car owner, it came down to more questions than progress. They are very knowledgeable about cars and what they are doing. The first car was a Nissan Sentra with low mileage, and all accessories included. I'm very happy with their service, and they help people with good or bad credit. Highly recommend for those who are looking for their first car."

Should I Lease or Buy?

Leasing or buying a vehicle are both options that each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Making the right decision is entirely based on your personal needs and situation. If you're interested in finding out more, check out our blog post that delves into both options to help you decide what's right for you.

Why Would I be Denied a Car Lease?

We work with you to streamline the process of getting a loan. Here are two of the most common reasons why a traditional lender might deny your auto financing:

No credit history: Having little to no credit history is a common reason why younger citizens and immigrants might get refused finance. The earliest age that someone can start building credit is 18 years old. Canada Drives works with 1st-time buyers to help them get approved for a great vehicle.

Bad credit history: Bad credit is due to missed payments, collections, bankruptcy, divorce, and many other reasons. We work with a wide variety of dealerships and lenders that are equipped to work with individuals with no credit history.

Many people all over Canada, including Victoria, BC, have good reasons for having bad credit. The good news is that your credit can be rebuilt with regular on-time payments so you can get the car you want today. Simply apply online in under two minutes.

"Not only did they help us get into a newer vehicle but they are helping us rebuild our credit... I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a newer vehicle with bad credit." – Stephanie
