coolant flush - roadtest required?

Just want to know if one does a coolant flush, is a roadtest required? I'd rather not have my dealership drive my car if it is not necessary. Thx.

No, there shouldn't be any road test for that.

Thx. It's so damn annoying that I have to keep vigilant about potential joyriding. They can joyride their demos, why do they try to joyride customers' cars??

Btw, I recently had my sparkplugs and brake pads+discs changed: was a roadtest warranted for those?

A short roadtest after brakes isn't a bad idea.
