Selling Your Car? Are There Guidelines For Test Drives?

There are some general guidelines to stay safe when selling a car. For starters, it’s better to meet at a public location than a private home. Sellers should also make sure their car insurance covers other drivers. When a prospective buyer asks for a test drive, take a picture of the person’s identification and insurance information.
