What do I need to get pre approved for an auto loan?
Generally, you’ll need to provide proof of identity and residence. Realize that you’ll need to have a good credit score to qualify for a loan and typically a great credit score to obtain the advertised interest rate the lender is offering.
Can you get preapproved for a car loan with bad credit?
If you have bad credit and can’t get preapproved for an auto loan from a financial institution, you might be able to get a loan from the car dealership. But be aware that the interest rates on these loans can be higher than what you’d get from a lending institution.
