Can i get car finance with an EU drivers licence?

Hi - I am a European citizen and have been in the UK for three and a half years and am on the electoral roll. I have a couple of credit cards and have had no problems with payments. However, i still have a European driving license. Is this a problem? Nick

Asked by Nick

Hi Nick, no this is not a problem. We have a few lenders who accept people with EU driving licences. As you will have a good to fair credit rating due to not missing any payments then we'll have a very good chance of getting you approved. How much finance do you require and do you have a part exchange or deposit to place into the deal? Can you also prove your income with payslips or bank statements if required? Kind regards, Rachel :-)
