Frequently asked questions
A car loan is a personal loan that you can use to buy a car.
Before applying for a car loan, we’d recommend finding the car you’d like to buy first so you know how much you’ll need to borrow.
Once you know how much you want to borrow, you can use our loan calculator to get an idea of what your monthly repayments may look like. You can also get a personalised quote by logging onto Internet Banking. In most cases, we'll tell you how much you could borrow and if you're likely to be approved, before you apply.
If your loan is approved, you could have the money in your account the same day. You can then pay the car dealership or private seller in full and pay back the loan to us as per the agreed terms.
When buying a car with the help of Lloyds Bank, you have three options to choose from – a personal loan, Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) or Hire Purchase (HP).
A car loan is a personal loan, so you don’t have to use it to buy a car. Once the money is in your account, you can use it for just about anything, although there are some restrictions. We can’t issue loans intended for:
- Any illegal activity.
- Speculative purchases, e.g. gambling, investments and share purchases.
- Business related purposes.
- The purchase or lease of land or property, either in full or in part. This includes deposits.
- Timeshares/holiday clubs.
These limits apply whether you want to borrow money for yourself, or to support someone else. For example, you can't take out a loan and give those funds to a family member as a deposit for a house.
Getting a personalised quote with us does not use a credit check or affect your credit score.
When you apply for a car loan, we will perform a credit check. This is to help us understand how likely you are to pay the loan back.
