    Hello everyone

    Ive just recently passed my driving test with only 2 minors! I'm possibly going to a dealership tomorrow (sunday 8th november 2015) to test drive a car im interested in. do you reckon they'd let me test drive their vehicles if i only have this certificate? I'm expecting my photo card licence on the 26 of november

    Thanks

    If it's anything like when I went for a test drive for my first car, they didn't even ask if I had a license and let me drive the car back to the dealership.

    You only need to send the certificate off if you don't get the test centre to do it.

    You don't need to send off the certificate to get the card as stated above, as you probably know. The certificate is proof that you've passed before your new license arrives.

    It might be worth taking another photo ID as well as your pass certificate, like your passport, so they can confirm your identity if they want to. Apart from that, there should be no problem. They want to sell their cars after all!
