​Flexible times. Flexible Routes.

Experience our vehicles the way you want. 

At Hodgson Motor Group we believe in choice. By giving you choice, you are in control of your own decisions and you can make up your own rules on the vehicle you are testing. After all, it’s not about saddling you with a car you’re not happy with, we’d much rather you get what you want and ultimately makes you happy.

Test drive it on your own

In all our dealerships you have the option to take a test drive unaccompanied*. Test drives are exciting and exploratory and we know from years of experience that some people feel uncomfortable whilst driving with a salesman in the car and probably not drive or test the vehicle the way they would like to.

On the other hand if you want to ask questions whilst driving, or don’t feel confident driving alone, then a member of our team will happily assist during your test drive. The choice is yours.

Pushed for time? We have test drives to suit all.

We offer a few different types of test drives to suit your busy schedule. If you have got a free lunch break and would like to test drive one of our new vehicles then it’s not a problem. Give us a call and our sales team will prepare the vehicle for you. As soon as you arrive, it’ll be ready to go for your test drive. Quick, simple and easy.

A test drive for you – no set routes

Want to try a vehicle on your daily route to work or your nearest shopping centre? Sure! Flexible options are available here too, all you need to do is contact your


nearest Hodgson dealership and our sales team will be able to come up with an option that meets your requirements.

Book a Test drive

As a busy North East dealership group, we always encourage all our current and new customers to book a test drive prior to visiting the showroom. We’ll ensure the vehicle is super clean, fuelled and ready for you to jump straight into when you arrive. Booking a test drive means avoiding disappointment and excuses like, ‘we’re sorry, the car is not on site at the moment!’. So why not make it easy for yourself and book today.

Terms and conditions

Like any dealership we’ve got a couple of quick forms to fill out, just to take some of your details, but it’s no more arduous than that. Just remember your driving licence and once you’ve done the paperwork, you’re free to go and have fun driving your chosen vehicle.
