The Terms and Conditions around test drives are unchanged for 2024 and we will be announcing all participating manufacturers closer to the event.

At the bottom of the page you will find a table where you will be able to see all the manufacturers / dealerships involved this year, the models of car they are bringing to EV LIVE.

Important Information
Each test drive will last 30 minutes and we recommend when pre-booking test drives to leave at least 15 minutes between test drives. On the day test drives are operated on a ‘first come first serve’ basis,

We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early for each test drive to complete the necessary paperwork.

Test Drive Criteria
For all test drives at EV LIVE at Blenhiem Palace, drivers are required to fulfil the following criteria:
– Be at least 25 years old
– Have held a full UK driving licence for at least 2 years
– Less than 6 points on their driving licence

DVLA Check Code
Whether you are pre-booking test drives or looking to complete a test drive on the day, we strongly recommend coming prepared with a DVLA Check Code and a detailed overview of your licence.

This is a really simple to do, completed by the DVLA, and will speed up the process when you arrive for each of your test drives.

To create a DVLA Check Code, follow these steps, and remember to print a hard copy or download a pdf version and save to your mobile device to bring to your test drives
