How do I purchase and/or activate test drive?

Test Drive can be purchased within Autogate via the "store" option on the left-hand side menu. Once you enter the store, you will see Test Drive as an option. Clicking on the "subscribe" button will initiate the sign-up process.



What do I need to do to start capturing Test Drives at my dealership?

To get started, download the AutoGate App available in Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

It is recommended that you add your own terms and conditions via the desktop. You will need to navigate to Reports -> Test drive. On the left-hand side, navigate to settings, which will provide you with a page where you are able to enter your own terms and conditions.

In a case where no terms & conditions are entered, the terms and conditions page will prompt the customer to refer to the dealership to see the terms and conditions.


How Can I start a test drive?

To start a Test Drive, open the AutoGate app. You can start a Test Drive from any prospect or inventory item. You can also start a Test Drive on a walk-in from either the 'inventory' or 'prospects' tab.  You will see 3 dots in the top right hand corner, clicking on this will give you the option for Test Drive. Once you move through this page, click on the '+' button to start a new Test Drive.



 Where can I find my in progress/completed test drives?
