how old you gotta be to test drive?

Ive test driven cars before when i was like 18/19. im 19 now.
My friend is thinking about getting the new caliber, and i was like, just test drive the mazda6.

so at the mazda dealership, the guy was like "how old are you" my friend is like "19" and the guy was like "you gotta be 21 to test drive" .... what?
This same dealership let me test drive when i was younger before, and even let me take the car by myself to my house!

Any car dealership will let me test drive, and he has test driven cars before too.


Is my dealership giving us the run-around?

they let me tho.

I got to take it home by myself, and they knew it wasnt even the one i wanted.

plus this is a dealership, they let anyone drive if qualified.

Re: how old you gotta be to test drive?

I'm pretty sure you just have to have a valid driver's license. And most of the time the salesman comes along on a test drive.

I think it's just an excuse.
