What is the minimum age to apply for car finance?

Hello Rachel, what is the minimum age to apply for car finance?

Asked by Geraldine Kennedy

Hi Geraldine, the age you have to be to apply for car finance can vary from lender to lender as they all have different criteria.

However, in the main most lenders can potentially help people that are 18 and over. How old are you and what is your credit history like? To get approved (if you are under 21) you'd have a greater chance if you added a co-hirer such as a parent.

Please make an application when you've considered your options and if approved you can choose a car from any reputable dealer and we also provide a no obligation quote. Kind Regards, Rachel
