Do I have to wear a face covering to visit my local Retailer?
Except where legal restrictions still apply, it is not a requirement to wear a face covering. However we continue to strive to keep all our customers and our teams safe and feeling comfortable. If you are in contact with someone during a visit and would like them to wear a mask, please just ask. Likewise, if they request that you wear one, we'd kindly ask for your support and co-operation.

Do I need to make an appointment to visit my Retailer?
While you are welcome to drop in, to avoid waiting times or disappointment, we always encourage you to contact your local Retailer in advance to request a test drive or showroom appointment. Our teams are available via telephone or online.

Can I take a test drive?
Yes, test drives are available. Please contact your Retailer online or via telephone to arrange an appointment and get behind the wheel of the model you’re interested in.

If I or a member of my household are currently self-isolating due to COVID-19 and work is due on my vehicle. What should I do?
In order to keep all our customers and teams as comfortable and safe as possible, we would kindly ask that you do not visit a showroom if you have symptoms of or have tested positive for COVID-19. Please contact your local Retailer to discuss your requirements, and our teams will be happy to adjust your appointment to a more suitable time.
