What are the laws on test drives

Isn't there some sort of law which says you can test drive a car which you are thinking of purchasing without being insured on said car, as long as the owner is in the car too?

Re: What are the laws on test drives

I don't think there is any law allowing you to do this,

garages have trade plates, and should have the correct insurance to cover it's customers.

Private runners, if you're driving someone else car it's your responsibility to check that it is insured for you to test drive. If you have car insurance of your own then you might be covered under that but normally only third party. YOU NEED TO CHECFK YOUR POLICY. Do not assume you have the cover.

Hope this helps.

Re: What are the laws on test drives

Does it count if the current owner has an "open drive" policy on their car? I know a few of my mum's friends have this, so she can drive their cars on their insurance, but I have heard somewhere you have to be over 21 or something?

Re: What are the laws on test drives
