TCS test: how to do it? (insurance, plates)

I am looking for my first car and I found something which interests me. As it's an old car, I would like to prevent big surprises (like rust underneath, etc.) and the garage agreed that I can myself pass the TCS test.

My questions are the following: I don't have yet neither a plate nor a car insurance.

How can I bring then the car to the TCS center?

Thanks for your advices...

Thanks for this suggestion, it is correct that usually they can give plates.

I found out though that you can also have provisory plates from the Cantonal services for around 85 CHF with insurance for one day and is called "Tagesschild".

Using the garage plates should be free of charge.

If you like the car, why not ask the garage to get it tested before you buy it?
It will cost another Fr 150, but you will have to test it soon anyway.
