“If you’ll be test driving a car from a dealership, don’t worry. Car dealers typically have blanket auto insurance for anyone who operates their vehicles.
If you’ll be test driving a car sold by a private party, their insurance should cover liability for property damage and bodily injury, up to a certain limit. But just to be on the safe side, check with the seller to verify that they’re properly insured and that they have sufficient liability limits on their policy.”
