On May 13th, the SMMT published new guidelines stating that, in order to adhere to social distancing guidelines post-lockdown, dealerships are no longer permitted to offer accompanied test drives.
This means that all dealerships that previously offered this service need to find a new way to conduct test drives in a safe, efficient way. One way to do this is by offering unaccompanied test drives.
Unaccompanied test drives have always been a valuable sales tool for vehicle dealerships. However, many dealerships may be feeling concerned about the associated costs, risks and logistical challenges.
