    Hello @ynut thanks for your query, you might be able to apply for a grant to help cover the cost of Advance Payment for the vehicle you require, you can read more about that here.

    I've marked your post as unanswered so that our members can find it, and moved it into our transport category. If you have any other questions in the meantime please let us know.

    It will depend on the reasons why you need the grant. For example, if you need help with the AP of a WAV then your application will be more likely to be accepted. If it's for an advance payment of a vehicle with a high spec then there's likely to be less chance of receiving a grant.
    All you can do is ring to make enquiries and then apply.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @ynut :) 

    Thanks for your query. I hope both @Alex_Scope and @poppy123456, have been able to answer your question? 

    I do also think that enquiring about the different loan options is the best route to go down. Whether that be emailing various companies or speaking to them over the phone. Do you feel comfortable in doing this?
