    Help :)

    I have a Bit of a dilemma. My car has been of the road for a good three months, it has no mot or tax and I no longer have insurance. I have now got the money to get it repaired. How do I get it to Archie moss ? I've been told that as long as it's booked in at a garage I can just drive it down but I don't want to take the risk.
    Cheers

    any vehicle on the road, by law must be insured. your right in the sense that a car can have no mot and be on the road, as long as it is booked in to a garage and is being driven there. the road tax im unsure about.
    your best bet is on a trailer

    Lol two threads, same answer from two people.

    Road tax, it'll need an MOT, that's what booking it in for the repair is for. You won't need car tax to get it to the garage to be repaired to pass it's MOT.

    Your not wrong, the car will still need insurance on it.

    If you read the small print of the fully comp drivers policy it will state that they're allowed to drive any other car, covered by 3 party insurance as long as that car is insured.

    How about if it's getting "toe'd" lol.
    You see the thing is I've had a mobile mechanic look at my car and basicly he couldn't find out what was wrong with it. I don't want to fork out for insurance if the problem of the car is more costly then the cost of the car and then lose a months insurance just for me to take it 2 miles down the road.
    If there is another way please let me know.

    Nope, if it's not insured, none of the tyres should be in contact with the road.

    You have two options.

    1. Trailer it. (not a "Dolly" that sits under the front wheels only)
    2. Insure it.

    You'll need to ask the garage about that.
