    If you speak to the bank manager, they can wire the money over the very next day. Much quicker than cheque!

    You could do a CHAPS transfer which can go through the same day or get a Banker's Draft.

    Why don't you just ask for a bankers draft? - The Bank writes a cheque and deducts the money from your bank account. You take the cheque to the dealer. Probably costs about 10 for the bank to do this.

    Correct.

    Costs 10 and provided you've got the dosh, bankers draft there and then. Takes about 15mins.

    Re: clearing of a cheque with bank???

    Who are you buying from, a dealer or a private seller? Even with banker's drafts, most sellers will wait for clearance before releasing goods. This is because of the high incidence of theft & fraud. I work in banking & one of the most frequent complaints is from sellers who have accepted a banker's draft & released goods immediately, believing a draft is "as good as cash", only to have the draft bounce later, because it was either stolen or forged. A banker's draft IS NOT AS GOOD AS CASH!!

    A CHAPS transfer is a much better idea. This moves the funds electronically from your bank to the seller's account. One the funds arrive in the seller's account, they should be happy to release the car to you.
