Hello and welcome to Just Answer.

My name is Alex and I'm happy to help with your question today.

You should get something from your friend in writing to confirm that he has given you the car to sell.

There is nothing illegal about the arrangement. You can sell the car on your friends behalf. That is quite legal.

If he wants, he can give you the car as a gift. If so you will have to inform DVLA of the change of ownership using the V5 form.
