The car overdraft or the overdraft against car is essentially a secured loan like a home mortgage loan. It allows you to take a loan on your existing car, by pledging the car registration papers with the lender.

There is a difference between the traditional car loan and the car overdraft - The former is used to purchase a car while the latter is typically an instrument to raise money for a sudden money requirement by pledging a car you already own.

Just like a personal loan, there is no restriction on the end-use of a car overdraft.
