Can I pay off a personal loan quicker than the life of the loan?

Yes. Although it is worth noting that your lender may charge you a penalty for paying early. The lender makes their money through the interest that you pay on your loan. Therefore, if you pay early, they will miss out on future income in the form of interest. 

Make sure there are not any pre-payment penalties attached to your loan before paying in advance. You can confirm if this is the case with your lender.
