I need finance for a car that's £5000 and I'm a driving instructor, is this a problem?

Hi Edwin,

I have recently qualified as a driving instructor. I have seen a car I would like to buy to teach my students in, it's £5000. My credit is good, but I recently missed a payment of £45 on my mobile phone contract. Would you be able to help me?

Hi there Gregory, thank you for your question.

Firstly, congratulations on qualifying as a driving instructor! Did you have a job prior to qualifying? The reason I ask is because most of our finance providers require 3 months proof of income. The fact that you have good credit means that we may be able to help you without this proof to be honest, so not to worry if you don't!

A missed payment of £45 shouldn't cause too much of an issue! Do you have any other credit? Also, are you on the electoral roll? These factors would also help! Based on what you have told me, we could certainly try our best to help you.

Please make an application when you're ready and if approved you can choose a car from any reputable dealer and we also provide a no obligation quote. Kind Regards, Edwin
