How do you test drive a car without buying it?

I’m in the market for a new car and want to test a few, so I know what I’ll need to save for. Is it possible for me to test drive a car without buying it?

Yes! You can test drive a car without buying it. Generally, car dealerships will allow you to test drive almost anything.
The goal of the test drive is to help convince you to purchase a car, which is why most dealerships allow you to do so. Just be sure to be upfront with the salesperson. You can let them know you’re interested in a particular car and want the information on it, should you decide you’d like it. Doing so can prevent the salesperson from pressuring you into buying the vehicle.
When you head to the dealership, bring your license and proof of insurance if you have it. While dealerships have insurance on their cars, they may ask if you have a current policy. You’ll also need to have a license to drive the car yourself. If you don’t, you could ask a licensed friend or family member to come along with you.
When you do pull the trigger on that new car, the Jerry app can help you find the insurance for it. Jerry generates competitive quotes from top providers in less than a minute, saving you time and money.
