Thank you for your question which has now been passed to me as a solicitor in Scotland. It is legal to drive a vehicle without an MOT provided it is being driven to an MOT station. So in theory you could have it driven to the dealer. However I can quite understand why you would want to do so. I think you have to get a bit tougher with the dealer after all he is the one in breach of contract. Tell him you are rejecting the car, he can collect it from the other garage and that he has 48 hours to refund your money and if he doesn't you are going to sue him in the sheriff court. There is of course no doubt that you will be successful and you will be able to claim your legal costs as well. He is the one who sold you a car that was in fact illegal to drive. You should see a solicitor if he doesn't refund you immediately. His assertion that you can't have a refund until the car is back in his name is ***** ***** I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
