What info/documents do I need to apply for a car loan?

I haven't applied for a car loan before, so I'd like to know what info I need for the application process.

Every lender is different, but nearly all of them look for applicants who have a driver’s license, sufficient income, and a stable banking and credit history. In addition to your driver’s license, proof of income, and any documents pertaining to your banking and credit history, some lenders may also ask for information about your job history and address history.
