    Car insurance question

    Hi folks, excuse my dumbness but i have a question regarding car insurance. My wee brother needs his car moved from a garage where it was gonna get fixed but cos its gonna cost about £1000 to fix it(french car) he cant afford it atm so needs to get it towed back to house.

    Question is, he is a bit of a wimp and scared to sit in the car to steer etc while it gets towed, the other person on his insurance is being a dick and refuses to help out. So im wondering would anyone else be able to to do it and would they need to be insurured on the vehicle to simply sit in the car while its being towed?

    tell him to grow some balls.....or pay the money.

    As long as there is insurance on the car, I expect that it's fine for someone with 'drive other cars, third party only' would be able to 'drive' it.

    See i would do it as i have done it serveral times before but his car is on finance so the whole 'drive other cars, third party only' thing is out the window is it not because the car technically still belongs to finance co.


    Argggh i wish he would stop being a wimp im using my car to bloody pull the thing lol

    Finance doesn't come in to it. As long as he has insurance on that car, you can drive it if your policy gives you 3rd party cover.

    ...the car broke down outside the garage.

    Call the RAC/AA and get them to take it home for you

    Had a brainwave and realised i would of been better phoning my insurance co to ask them lol.
    They said i can drive it as long as got owners permission even if its on finance. Strange that cos my previous car insurance would not allow me to drive another cars 3rd party if it has finance on it only if it was free from any form of HP etc.
    So think al do it for him and get other half to pull it using 'The Machine' my car....
