I had a few minutes today when i couldnt be bothered to work and got thinking about towing. if a toad is classed as a trailer, even if it doesnt meet all the requirements as such, whilst hitched does this mean there is no requirement for a current MOT, a current TAX DISC or compulsory 3rd PARTY INSURANCE providing you dont unhitch in a public place. I'm not going into the realms of weather or not its legal. thats already been covered more than once just the fact that a trailer doesn't, legally, need these things. john.
