What does it mean to pawn my car and still drive it? 

Pawn your car and still drive it or Lend and Drive or “Pawn Drive” are all names for a way of lending using your fully paid up vehicle as collateral. This form of lending has been in existence for 30 year in USA and the UK and tends to be more popular than pawning your vehicle, as a pawn does not allow you to still use your vehicle.

The Lend and Drive way of doing things simply allows you to still drive and use your vehicle even though you have had money lent to you. The lending company only takes title to the vehicle and does not actually take possession of the vehicle. So in effect it is a loan against your car papers.

This allows the client a far better chance of carrying on normally and a better chance of repaying the loan.

The Lend and Drive criteria is more difficult than pawn to qualify, as the lender must be able to prove they can pay back the monthly fees with no issues.
