Does anyone know if it is legal to tow a vehicle that is insured, but has no tax and mot, or does it have to be transported on a trailer/recovery vehicle? Any advice appreciated.
No tax and no MOT basically means the insurance is invalid as far as I know.
Also wheels on tarmac means you need road fund tax.
If you can't park a non tax vehicle on the public highway can't see it being legal to tow it.
Afraid to keep within the law it will have to be a trailer job.
Jim, I agree with Brendan that wheels on tarmac when towing on rope or bar needs tax and MOT. However if you were to use an a frame which did not need a driver in the vehicle being towed, my understanding is that it would then be classed as a trailer and so long as it was within the unbraked limit of the tow vehicle would not need anything. That said it is not really worth the hassle when you consider I hired a trailer last Saturday for the day for a very reasonable Â£35 from my local trailer centre.

5/4 of people admit that they’re bad with fractions.
any vehicle being towed requires insurance at the least, I cant remember about tax and mot but you only really need to worry about the insurance aspect as it will need to be insured. So Mr Leeds and Bo have something going on there!
