Going for a test drive Tesla calls it a Remote Destination Drive

With the return of tax credits I've started looking into getting a Model Y. I was looking to do a test drive and when I went to set things up on the Tesla web-site there were a few options shown for where I could go. Two were for a service center/showroom and the other was described as a Remote Destination Drive. For those of you that would be more in the know what is the difference between going to a Tesla site versus going to one of those Remote Destinations?

The showroom is about as far away as the Remote Destination location so I was trying to figure out if there was any difference from a test driver perspective in going to a Tesla location versus this remote setup. I wager after the drive I'll have questions and I'm not sure if that's something that can easily be taken care of at the Remote Destination?

Mods please feel free to delete or move if this is in the wrong place.

I did both of my test drives this way. My SA unlocked and started the car for me, answered any, questions, and I was off on my own. I think I prefer it this way
