Key Points

A Credit Application is a Borrower's Formal Request
A credit application is a borrower's formal request to a lender for an extension of credit. The request is typically made in written form, but can also be made orally. The application must contain all of the information the lender requests. This usually includes proof of identity.
Proof of Identity
Proof of identity is a requirement for a credit application. This is to ensure that the lender is lending to the correct person. Examples of proof of identity include driver's license, passport, and other forms of identification.
