Documents Required to Lease A Car

You will need to provide some basic information, documentation and proof of identification when leasing a car with CVS.

We like to keep things as simple as possible for our clients, and unlike our competitors, only request the information we need to process your application.

The application and supporting documentation is used to understand our 2 leasing requirements:

  1. You can afford the lease
  2. You are traceable through your home address and employment history

The quicker you can supply the documentation as part of your application, the quicker we can give you a decision and get you driving your new car.
