Test drive

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 one day to schedule a convenient time.

Unlike other car companies, Tesla custom builds each Tesla vehicle for a specific customer. To give you the opportunity to test drive a Tesla vehicle 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 mall, you’ll be checked in at the retail store and given a brief overview before walking out to the garage. Test drives are about 15 minutes long and designed to demonstrate the unique capabilities and performance of a Tesla vehicle. You must have a valid drivers license and be over the age of 21 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.
