The Test Drive Process, Explained

Purchasing a new vehicle is an exciting experience, but it’s also a big decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The only way to make this decision, and to truly appreciate what owning a vehicle could be like, is to get behind the wheel and experience it for yourself.

Here’s an overview of what you can expect when you come to test drive a new vehicle with us.

Meet and greet

On your arrival at our dealership, a Vehicle Sales Consultant will be on hand to greet you at our Showroom Reception. We’ll take a few minutes to introduce ourselves, offer you a complimentary coffee, water or other beverage, and get to know you a little better while discussing the vehicle that’s caught your eye.

Getting behind the wheel

For insurance purposes, we’ll need to see and make a copy of your driver’s licence, along with making a note of your contact details before going ahead with a test drive. This ensures we’re both fully covered while the test drive is underway. Once this paperwork is out of the way, you’ll be ready to get behind the wheel.

Your Vehicle Sales Consultant will accompany you on the test drive, taking the opportunity to showcase features and technologies the vehicle is equipped with and answering any questions you may have. If you would prefer, your Sales Consultant will happily jump into the driver’s seat first to explain the vehicle’s features while in action, letting you take over once you’re more familiar with the vehicle.

Trade-in appraisals

If you’re interested in trading your current vehicle, we can appraise the potential trade-in vehicle while you’re out on your test drive. Our team will carry out an inspection on your vehicle to evaluate how much it’s worth, aiming to offer you the best price possible.

Need to discuss finance?

We offer an extensive range of vehicle finance and leasing options. Our on-site Business Consultant, Jared Syme, is available to discuss how we can help you into the driver’s seat sooner rather than later, with tailored packages based on your budget and requirements.

Options are available for both private and business purchasers.

We’ll keep in touch.

We understand that purchasing a new vehicle is not a decision to be taken lightly. Once you’ve completed your test drive, you’re welcome to take some time before making a decision on purchasing. Your Vehicle Sales Consultant will keep in touch with you following your test drive, should they be able to offer any assistance during your decision making process.

See you soon!
