Currently only available in Arizona, a registration loan is a combination of a payday loan and a title loan. LoanMart does not do registration loans.

Hold up! What is a payday loan? According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a payday loan is a “short-term, high cost loan, generally for $500 or less, that is typically due on your next payday.” Now that you know what a payday loan is, you will better understand what a registration loan is.

A registration loan requires that the borrower have a vehicle registered in their name in order to get approved. A qualified free-and-clear vehicle title also in the borrower’s name is not required to receive this type of loan.

The catch of a registration loan is that payment is due in full on the day of the borrowers next pay date. This can be stressful because the borrower needs to use a large sum of money from their paycheck in order to pay off the loan, and this brings them right back to square one: they are low on cash again.

While a title loan does require that you provide a free-and-clear title with your name on it, they do not demand you pay back your entire loan just a few weeks after you take out the loan.

A title loan is a way to use your qualified free-and-clear vehicle title as collateral to borrow funds.
