    Need some advise on towing a car that has an MOT but no tax.

    Found a car that i'm interested in buying, just trying to find out if I can legal to tow a car with just an MOT on it?

    I've had a search on google and there is alot of people saying you can or you can't. Am I right in thinking it needs to have all 4 wheels off the road?
    It'll only being towed a short distance.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    If you're happy with it, why not just go and get tax there and then from post office?

    I thought all 4 wheels had to be off

    Can only be towed on a trailer, unless you know a mate with trade plates?

    Don't know anyone with trade plates.

    Think I'll speak to the seller and see if I can collect it during the week instead of Sunday. That way I can get it taxed.

    Most down here are open on a Sunday - it would be worth checking

    I'll have a look but I'm sure all are closed on Sunday.

    Think all up here are closed from 12 ok a Saturday onwards

    Have you bought the car? Any reason the seller can't tax it for you?
