Give them the option to pay via direct deposit, bank check. However if they do pay via these methods, don't hand over car until money is cleared. With test driving ask to see their license, write down there license number and name. Let them go by them selves for the test drive.
Definitely the license thing! If you have a scanner even better, I'd scan it! Then let them drive it. Well from my point of view, I want to drive the car and discuss with DF while I am driving what I think.
However re the bank cheque to clear thing, I understand not wanting to let someone drive away and then be able to cancel the bank cheque. However I am about to buy a car (once I get my insurance number) and I would not be willing to give someone $10k when I don't have the car.
Personally, I'll be taking cash to pay, if they don't want 12k or whatever then they don't want to sell their car very much.
