    I know this is in the wrong forum but I couldn't find any other anon forums and I'm lazy so here I am. Sorry. Also this is driving me crazy so it's kinda appropriate.

    Anyway, I am 17 and looking for a car- I am taking my driving test soon and although it would probably be a good idea to wait and then get a car once I've passed, I've spotted a car I really like and I want to buy it now. It's not a matter of just waiting and getting it later, since it's a private seller, it's a rare custom car and it will be gone pretty soon, I expect.

    I am totally broke right now but at the end of next month, I am getting paid about £6000, however that's too far away. So I'm wondering if your wonderful TSR people could give me some advice The issue is, I imagine I won't be able to get a loan since they review your current bank account status and inbound/outbound payments when deciding whether to give you a loan or not. But I can prove that I will be getting this money paid into my account at the end of April, so do you think it would be possible for me to get a loan in the meantime? I only need £2000 to get this car right now, since the guy is trying to sell as fast as possible. Also, if it's relevant, I will be getting similar monthly payments after that so would that increase my chances?

    So, does anyone have any advice or possibly even know of a bank/creditor who would accept me fast? I really want this car, so I hope there is some sort of a solution. Thanks

    Pretty sure you can't get a loan, but even if you could, you would absolutely mad to take one out.

    You can't get a loan in the UK until you are 18, so unless you can borrow money from a relative or get them to take out a loan for you then there isn't much you can do.
