    Default Vehicle Towing question

    If you are towing a vehicle using a fixed tow bar, does the vehicle being towed have to have MOT and tax?! I heard a rumour that it doesn't as it is classed as a trailer!

    i think it needs tax to be on the road, even a car not being used and parked on the public highway needs valid tax
    not sure about insurance though, but wouldnt have thought it needs a current mot as its not being driven
    i am sure a more educated member will be along soon to put me right,lol

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    The whole car has to be off the road, ie on a full car trailer.

    I looked into this when I SORN'd my Stag and transfered the number plate. The DVLA could have demanded an inspection of the car, and it would have needed to be towed there on a trailer.
