Need a test drive

Right, so Iím in a slight pickle here which I would love anyone to give me some advice on.
If you have seen my first post since joining here you will know that I am very much looking at getting a GT86 and joining you guys, however, I need to test drive one!

Now this is a problem for a multitude of reasons, these being - I canít seem to get a temporary insurance quote for it, another being that I am only 18 hence temporary insurance companies not wanting any of it, furthermore we are in the midst of a national lockdown where no dealerships will consider any sort of test drives. Iím stuck and Iím not sure what to do.

I live in the south east, just north east of London and if anyone has any help or advice they could give me it would be greatly received. I very much want to buy this car but I do have to test drive it beforehand. Help!

I think you'll have to wait until dealers can do test drives again and for lockdown to end. Technically you can't buy a car in lockdown anyway unless you do it online and don't have a test drive.

If it's from a main dealer then i doubt they'll go against the "rules".
I've had 4 test drives in the last 2 weeks trying to find a car for my sister, all from independents. I guess it's all dependent on whether they want their business to survive or not.
