With Test Drive Car Insurance you can:

  • Legally test drive a car on UK roads both from a private seller or test drive a car from a dealer on your own!
  • You can sometimes test drive a car from a dealership on the dealer’s trade insurance policy, however if you want to take an extended test drive (without the salesman sitting next to you) then you will need to arrange a short term test drive insurance policy.
  • Test Drive insurance policies only cost a few pounds for a day.
  • Don’t run the risk of large fines and penalty points for driving without insurance.

A one day short term policy is the cheapest way of ensuring you are fully covered for the test drive.

How does Test Drive Insurance Cover work?

Daily Car Insurance works by giving you, the driver, your very own car insurance policy (short term) on the named car with the owner’s permission. As you’re not a named as a driver on the existing insurance policy in the unfortunate situation that you need to make a claim, the claim will be on your short term car policy, not the existing owner’s policy, keeping the car owner’s no claims incident free.
