    Can anyone help me with towing laws?

    My mates just bought a mitsubish 3000 gt twin turbo from brighton so it would be a 320mile round trip and he wants to tow it home, it has no mot and the engine doesnt run. Is it legal to tow on a solid bar? the dvla cant give a straight answer and my mates adamant that its legal to do so. I just dont want to go get in it and get f**ked by the police.

    Any help would be appreciated

    No road tax, the car can't touch the road! Need to be trailered home from my experience. or recovered on a flatbed.
