- Legislation preventing car dealers offering road tests on PX vehicles?
Just seen this on an ad for a car on eBay. Seller is a dealer, car was taken in part exchange.
LEGISLATION DOES NOT ALLOW US TO GIVE A ROAD TEST ON A TRADE PX CLEARANCE PROJECT VEHICLE EVEN THOUGH IT HAS BEEN DRIVEN IN BY IT’S PREVIOUS OWNER
Do I smell bovine excrement, or have I missed something since I last bought a car?Posted 2 years ago
Trade plates do not
Cover for a lack of mot unless it’s for a test drive related to the repairs for mot purposes…. Not punters testing it
Only tax and insurance are covered by trade plates
So i reckon it has no MOT or some serious fault that will be obvious when you look at it .
Sold as seen and needs work i guess.Posted 2 years agothenorthwindMember
Yes, there are laws to stop you driving unroadworthy vehicles on the road, but this seemed to imply that it was specifically because it was taken in part exchange. Just wondered.
I should mention I’m not seriously interested in the car, just came across it on an ad whilst idly browsing. I wouldn’t touch it anyway, sounds dodgier than a dodgy thing.Posted 2 years ago
