Get a Car Loan on Credit
So you want to get a Car Loan on Credit. Here's a few tips to ensure you have everything you need to make the application go as smoothly as possible.
What am I going to need to get a Car Loan on Credit?
Typically the things you are going to need are as follows:
Driver’s License: Most Banks and Lenders are going to want to make sure that you are legally able to drive before they will give you credit to get a vehicle. In some cases having a learners or new driver’s license will be enough, but it’s always worth checking.
Income: Most people applying for credit for a car loan will have to prove that they have a job. If you don’t have a job it may be enough if you can just show you have money coming in that will allow you to make the payments.
Citizenship + Age: Although a lot of lenders will give credit for a car loan to landed immigrants and “9” SIN numbers you may have to prove your legal standing in Canada. This is sometimes done through providing your social insurance number. Also to be able to getcredit for a car loan in Canada you must be at least 18 years of age.
