A test drive is a must when buying any kind of car or commercial vehicle. It’s the ultimate deciding factor as you get a feel for the vehicle, its size and how it drives. By the end of a test drive, you should know for certain whether it's the right one for you or whether you need to keep looking.
How to book a test drive
If you would prefer to pre-book there are options on the individual vehicle pages of our Pye Motors website for our new and used van and car pages. Alternatively, you can call your preferred dealership to arrange a date.
Buying a new or used vehicle is an exciting process but depending on how often you do it, it can be stressful ensuring you get the right vehicle for the right budget. Naturally our Pye team want to make you as comfortable as possible when choosing your vehicle. So if you want to check it fits in the garage, we’ll take you home to check. If you want to investigate different finance options to fit your company expenditure, we’ll get the calculator out.
For everything else we’ve asked our Pye sales team for their top tips to you ensure you make the most out of your test drive.
Do your research - take a look online first
It’s important to consider what you will be using your vehicle for. Perhaps you need the vehicle for its spacious legroom to keep the family happy, off-roading capabilities or maybe a dependable and efficient van to keep your business on the road. A good starting point is our online showroom where you can gain information about each of our vehicles to help you narrow down your selection. Our team can talk you through the options and advise which would best suit your needs and book your test drive.
If it’s one of our used cars, you have the option to reserve it for £99 so you don’t have to worry about it being purchased before you get chance to test drive it. This payment is fully refundable or taken off the total of your car should you choose to purchase.
Bring all the documents that you require
Most dealerships require a copy of your driving license, but we would recommend bringing both your driving license and a copy just in case. There is nothing worse than excitedly turning up for a test drive, only to realise you have forgotten your license. Although If this is the case, or if you prefer a member of the Pye team will happily take you out.
Ask all the questions
We pride ourselves on our expert knowledge and the high-quality vehicles both new and used, that we sell.
Our servicing team check all of our used vehicles, so you don’t have to, but this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t. We feature a number of vehicles that are locally sourced - vehicles that have been previously bought from Pye so we have a full service history even if ownership has changed.
We want all of our customers to feel confident enough to ask us any questions they may have about the vehicle and our team can take you through every aspect and how it all works.
Our experts will take you through every step of the process and provide you with all the information you need to make your decision.
Enjoy the drive
We can advise the best route from each of our dealerships so that you can go out and fully experience your vehicle and its capabilities. So whether you’re cruising in your Mustang Mach-E, off roading in your Ranger or experiencing one of our hybrid & electric range, enjoy the drive and test the technology such as sat navs, displays, FordPass connect, parking sensors and cameras.
Take your time
An average test drive is between 15-30 minutes and for many people that is more than enough time to feel comfortable with the drive. But here at Pye we are more than happy for you to ask for longer if you need it. We are 100% confident in our cars and commercial vehicles and we want you to be too.
We know that for our commercial vehicles, its a good idea to try them out in the workplace. So if you are thinking about changing your pick up or van this month, now is the best time to explore your options with our 24 hour Test Drive promotion. Prewarning - you might not want to give it back!
