If I test drive a car, and then buy it online or over the phone from the same business, and have it delivered to my home, does this still count as a distance sale? 

This is no longer classed as a distance sale, as you’ve had the opportunity to view the car before deciding to buy it. Therefore, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 will not apply in this instance.
