How do car dealerships verify employment?

I’m about to go to a car dealership. I know dealerships require certain documentation and require you to have a job, but how do dealerships verify employment?

You’re right, it’s a common practice for dealerships to verify employment!
In most cases, dealerships or lenders will verify employment by asking you to provide information regarding it. This includes:
  • Your income source
  • Your employer and their contact information
  • How long you’ve held your job
  • Your work history
With this, they may ask you to bring in your tax returns or two of your most recent paystubs, which would verify the information you provided.
If you have questions about what you’ll need at your specific dealership, it’s best to call ahead to prepare. Doing so will ensure you have the correct documentation with you when you go to look at cars.
In addition to employment, dealerships also verify insurance before you take home your new car. If you want the best insurance possible, Jerry is the place for you to find it.
