How to sell lhd car?
The more details you can provide about the car you wish to sell or part-exchange with us here at Auto Prestige London, the simpler the process will be. It is possible to order right hand drive and left hand drive vehicles, both of which are suitable options if you wanted to switch from a right hand drive to a left hand drive vehicle.
The use of large wagon trains in some countries, such as the United States, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries meant using several pairs of horses, and the driver sat behind the rear-left horse to maintain use of his whip hand. As a result, it was difficult to judge the amount of traffic coming at you, so many countries chose to adopt a keep right policy.
Why are right-handed cars driven on the left?
Long before cars were invented, people in the United Kingdom traveled on the left-hand side of the road. When and why? Since your right hand – your sword hand – can provide some defensive stabbing if needed if you are on the left. There was the possibility that there was no law back then. There is a similar reason why castle staircases spiral left as they descend; it is easier to stab downward with the right hand.
Is it illegal to drive a left-hand drive vehicle in the United Kingdom?
That is not the case at all. As long as your car meets all other legal requirements, you may drive a left-hand drive vehicle here. You may bring one in from abroad and register it here, although if it will be a permanent fixture, you may have to pay import duties and taxes.
Is it necessary to notify my insurance company?
Yes, your insurance company needs to know that your car is left-hand drive. It is likely that some insurance companies will charge more for a policy that covers left-hand drive automobiles, but others may have more experience in this area, so be sure to shop around.
Is there anything else I need to do?
Make certain your headlights are pointing in the right direction. In order to prevent dazzling oncoming traffic, car headlights are offset. For left-hand drive vehicles, headlamp adapters are necessary, just as many UK vehicles require corrective stickers when brought into Europe. In case you do not meet these requirements, you may be subject to a fine and your insurance may be canceled.
If you are driving, you will be located at a different location on the road, away from the center of the road. As a consequence, it is extremely important that you do not drift too far right in the lane, especially if you are used to driving a right-hand drive vehicle.
