How logbook loans work – a little more detail...

The way logbook loans work is really easy, and you don't even need to speak to an advisor throughout the application process if you want to do it all online!

Our V5 loan applications:

Receiving your online logbook loan quote

After entering your vehicle registration and mileage, you can choose the logbook loan amount and term with affordable instalments.

Simply select the loan quote that suits you, and we'll take you straight through to our online loan application form.

Completing your online application

We'll ask for some basic details from you, such as your name, address and date of birth, and you'll be asked to give us consent to run a credit check.

Don't worry if you have a poor credit rating, as we assess our V5 loans on your ability to keep up your repayments, not just on your past borrowing or spending.

What happens next?

If we don't require any further information, we'll give you the opportunity to book your appointment with one of our friendly agents there and then – we come to you to make it easier.

If we need to see proof of income or bank statements, you can securely and safely upload photos or documents straight from your computer, smartphone or tablet.

Fast track with Open Banking

We're pleased to be part of the new Open Banking service, which allows you to use your online banking facilities to share 'read only' statements encrypted from your bank.

By choosing this extremely fast and secure option, we can underwrite your V5 loan within 30 minutes of receiving the documents – making it one of the fastest online loans you can get!

Getting help with your application

You can manage your application and ask any questions you may have throughout the process in a variety of ways, giving you total control.

We can assist you via text message, by telephone, email or via our online chat service – so you have the choice of whether you'd like to speak to an advisor or simply message us!

You're almost there!

At this stage, your logbook loan application is 99% complete! All that's left to do is to arrange a meeting with one of our friendly agents at a time and location convenient to you.

During this quick 10 minute meeting, the agent will provide you the Bill of Sale and Fixed Sum Loan Agreement to check and sign, and then you hand over your V5 logbook, which we'll return once the loan is repaid.

Almost instant transfer of funds

Once everything is signed and we have your V5 logbook, we'll press the button and finish processing your loan – it really is that easy!

The money you've borrowed will soon be in your bank account. In most cases, the funds will arrive within 30 minutes of being transferred following your agent appointment.

This whole process takes just a couple of hours in many cases!
