I am on Jobseekers Allowance, Can I Get Car Finance?

I am 18 years old, on Jobseekers Allowance and have recently passed my driving test. Can you advise me if there any options for car finance?

I am on the electroral list, have a bank account, but I don't have any loans, or store cards.

Hi Mark, thank you for your question.

As you're 18, on the electoral roll and have some credit history (UK bank account) there is a possibility that we can help as we have lenders on our panel that approve people who are on JSA. However, due to your age and lack of credit history we may struggle a little. To give ourselves a better chance of obtaining an approval would you have a guarantor to add to the application at all (friend or family member)?

Either way please make an application and once approved you can choose a car from any reputable dealer and we also provide a no obligation quote. Kind Regards, Rachel
