Test drive

Model S test drives are available at all Tesla store locations. The first step is to request a test drive on our website. A product specialist will then contact you within 48 hours to schedule a convenient time.

Unlike other car companies, Tesla custom builds each Model S for a specific customer. To give you the opportunity to test drive Model S before you order, we pre-build a small number of cars and make them available at our stores. While walk-ins can sometimes be accommodated, test drive spots are limited. We encourage you to sign up and reserve a convenient time in advance.

Please plan to arrive ten minutes before your test drive appointment. If your Tesla store is located in a shopping center, you’ll be checked in at the retail store and given a brief overview before walking out to the car park. Test drives are designed to demonstrate the unique capabilities and performance of Model S. You must have a valid drivers license to test drive.

Tesla occasionally hosts test drive events for those who don’t live near a store. You can reserve a test drive in advance from our event schedule.

Tesla’s first priority on a test drive is the safety of our customers and staff. We reserve the right to prematurely end a test drive for any reason.
