He doesn't want to break it, that is why I said I would put a post on here. Hopefully someone will take it on.

For anybody else who might be interested;

I spoke to the seller today. The car does not have an MOT. It has been stood and the MOT has expired. I enquired as to the possibility of a potential buyer taking the car to the nearest MOT station to have it checked out, the seller is not prepared to agree to this. I think the seller just wants somebody who would arrive with a trailer and take the car away as is.

Kyle you would be able to drive the car home as long as you have it booked in for an mot at your local garage.

and of course insurance which can be got for £25 for the day using dayinsure

The back brakes are seized from standing so it couldn't be driven far.

Would you really get away with that over a longish distance?

I've heard many times people say it but personally I wouldn't risk it.

I've done it a few times, last time was 2012 and the journey from point of pick up to MoT station was about 65 miles. According to Goggle Maps, it's about 76 miles from Darlaston to Manchester so only about 10 miles more.

If the rear brakes could be released before driving away then it shouldn't be too much of a problem, someone probably left it parked with the handbrake on. :roll:
Cheers,
Dave
