What happens if any damage is incurred during the test drive or I get in an accident?

Auto accidents during test drives are highly uncommon but in most states, if you are in an accident while test-driving a private seller’s car, the seller’s insurance in many cases is primary. However, if after the insurance investigation, you are found at fault, the seller’s insurance company will more than likely pursue your insurance carrier to recover damages. For your personal financial protection, and in some states the law, you should have fully comprehensive insurance that will cover all parties in the unlikely event you are in an accident during a test drive One of the simplest ways to do this is to call your auto insurance company or one of the many leading insurance companies and request temporary or short term auto insurance to cover you during the test drive. In most cases these policies have the flexibility to customize to your time needs and if needed, in some cases, later converted into a full policy. If not, you can have the coverage for a single day or a month depending on your needs. Contact your auto insurance company or one of many available on the market like Tempcover.com that provides temporary car and van insurance. At Tempcover.com you can purchase auto insurance by the hour, day, or weeks. It is an entirely easy online process. Because Vehkle is not an automotive dealer and does not own or take possession of the seller’s car, Vehkle is not liable for damages a seller could incur while a potential buyer is test-driving their car being marketed by Vehkle. Therefore, Vehkle would not be liable for any damages in the unlikely event the seller’s car is damaged or had caused damage to someone else's property while being test-driven. Vehkle is a marketplace that sellers choose to use to market, and safely and transparently transact car sales between sellers and buyers. Whether you are test driving a car at an auto dealership or private party, it’s important that you are properly insured before going on a test drive. In the unlikely event, you are involved in an accident while test driving, telling the police officer you’re out test-driving won’t be a significant enough excuse for being uninsured.
