LONDON, England - A British insurance company is offering its dealer customers a new line of insurance to cover unaccompanied test drives.

Devitt Insurance says the offering, part of a new version of its DealerCover line, was a response to dealer requests.

“After speaking with many of our customers, we found that dealers wanted more freedom to offer test rides to their potential customers,” said Terry Whybro, head of commercial for Devitt. “We’ve listened to dealers and have introduced new wording into our policy for unaccompanied demonstrations, which should make their job that little bit easier, along with the business assist package we’re including.”

The new DealerCover also includes a free business assist package worth £230 (US$377.73) with all new motorcycle dealer policies. Dealers can choose from a selection of business support products within the package to help with other business priorities such as a legal document library, commercial legal expenses cover, health and safety, and risk management.
