OK maybe this is a stupid question, but why are you giving them a photocopy instead of your actual license? What purpose does this serve?Toolatecrew wrote: ↑Jan 27th, 2016 2:06 amI always ask for it back .
when I was test driving multiple cars and they asked me if they could copy my licence I said "No but here is a photocopy of it already made you can hang onto it until I return but I'll need it back when i give you the keys back" ;-)
It's not even a specific distrust for car dealers I don't want that info laying around anywhere. It also has an additional advantage of doing just a tiny bit to throw off the sales system that tries to put the sales person in control of the process. No one has photocopiers anymore do they? Are they scanning your licence and keeping a digital copy? Is doing so a convent way to pop into the sales manager's office to tell them you have an up and that you are going on a test drive so he can be prepared to "meet" you before you are allowed to leave.
Maybe it means nothing but I feel better knowing that it shows that I've test driven other cars and that I'm going to be test driving more before I agree to buy anything.
Not sure why you ask for it back either.. so they don't retain a copy? Can't they just photocopy your photocopy?
