Im currently in an IVA arrangement. The only reason i tried to hold off bankruptcy was due to needing my car for work. My car has now died. I am unable to purchase a car (due to my credit) and as such i will in turn lose my job. Is bankruptcy my only option now?

You could ask your IP for a payment break to gather funds for an "eBay Banger" to get you through, or to pay for repairs to the current car.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

You need to speak to your IP to see if your IVA terms can be amended to accommodate your change in circumstances.

I agree you should speak to your IP
