Can I get a car loan approved if I only have a job offer letter?

"I've been unemployed for over a year, but I just found a new job. Can I get a car loan if I only have a job offer letter?"

“You probably won’t be able to get a car loan with just the offer letter, as it doesn’t prove that you’re being paid or you’ve accepted the job.
After a few pay periods, you should be able to use those pay stubs, along with a letter of documentation from your employer, to prove your income.
You might also want to think about if you actually need a new car. You’ve been unemployed for a while; don’t hop immediately into debt if you can avoid it.”
