I've just passed my driving test but i'm unemployed. I have bad credit. Can i get car finance?

I just passed my driving test but I can't afford to buy a car. I've got a bad credit history & I'm not working.

I do get child tax credits and income support - would I be able to get a car on this?

Hi Nadine, thank you for your question.

Firstly, congratulations on passing your driving test. Secondly, the good news is that we do have lenders on our panel that help people who have bad credit and are on benefits get car finance.

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
