I am looking into buying a used car from a dealer here in the UK. I read several guides, but I still have some questions to which the answer might be different from my home country:
I saw that most dealers already have a test drive insurance for their cars. Do I need proof they have it, or just a "the vehicles are insured for the test drive, right?" should suffice?
Is it acceptable to have the car from a dealer inspected by your mechanic prior to the purchase? Does it mean that I can generally take the car to my mechanic or my mechanic has to perform the inspection at the dealership?
Some of the cars I checked the registration with the DVLA are considered "Untaxed". Is it possible to test drive an untaxed car provided its MOT is up to date?
Do dealers restrict test drives to people holding a UK-issued driving licence?
