Age Requirements To Lease A Car
If you don’t know what the age requirements to lease a car are, you need to know that most of the states and countries use a guideline called the age of majority. To put it into other words, it is about the age when a person is considered to be an adult and is capable of signing a legal contract, like a car lease or any other similar type of contract. The specific age for this is determined by countries, individual states and can vary greatly from one location to another.
In the United States, 40 states will allow 18-year olds adults to sign a car lease. One exception would be in Missouri where you have to be at least 21 years old in order to sign such a contract. In Nevada, Wisconsin and Ohio, you need to be at least 18 years old or a high school graduate, whichever occurs first. In Tennessee and Virginia, you must be a high school graduate or 18 years old, whichever happens last. For Nebraska, Delaware and Alabama, you need to be at least 19 years old.
Fulfilling the above requirements does not mean that you are immediately eligible for a car lease because many of the car dealerships will require a legal driver’s license (not a permit) as well as other things like a clean credit history or a good driving record.
In Canada you need to be at least 18 years old to lease a car, except for the following areas: British Columbia, Newfoundland, Labrador, Northwest Territory, Nova Scotia, Nunavut and Yukon.
In the European Union, the age requirements to lease a car are 18 years old. In addition, you need to be a current licensed driver that has a license issued in the state of residence, for one year. In addition, it might be necessary to have and IDP – International driver’s permit, visa or passport. Dealerships and leasing firms have different sets of qualifications which mean that you need to check out the local requirements to see if you are eligible for leasing a car.
Other possible car leasing requirements would have to be to pay the first month’s payment in advance or pay a security deposit or do a down payment. Of course, you will be obliged to pay dealer fees as well as taxes and registration inquiries.
