Are there lenders who offer car loans to non-permanent residents?
I'm a non-permanent resident who's in the U.S. for work purposes. I'd like to buy a car so I can get around more easily. Would I qualify for a loan?

While most lenders do not offer loans to non-permanent residents, there are some that will work with you. You will usually need to provide the lender with your visa, a letter from your employer, payment documents, and proof that you are a legal resident. Be aware, though, that if your visa is close to its expiration date, it is unlikely that lenders will work with you.

Does my girlfriend need to be on my car insurance if she lives with me?
She drives my car about 60% of the time, but she has her own car insurance and car. Am I required to list her on my policy, or will her insurance cover her if there's an accident when she's driving my vehicle?

"The state says that they are going to suspend my license—is there anything I can do? "
I forgot to pay for my car insurance. Once I realized this, I made my payments and started my policy up again right away. But the Arkansas DMV mailed me a letter stating that since I didn't maintain coverage, my license will be suspended. What can I do?
