Lexus LS430 - Short term insurance on a big engine car - JohnX

My 2002 LS 430 has been declared off road but has the MOT date coming up as I have use of another car for until the end of June 2017.I am hoping to transfer the insurance in end June to the Lexus but the problem is that the MOT runs out in a week.

Restarting the Tax is easy as I am on direct debit,but looking to get a days or a weeks worth of insurance is less straight forward.

This is just to drive to the workshop to get the MOT sorted.

Looked at a short term insurance company but they dont cover cars older than 10 years.

Does anyone know where to get a 7 day insurance(or even a 1 day! insurance)such as the type offered by dealers when you buy a car from them.

One of the sales points for short term insurance is use of classic cars so I am suprised it is not available for cars older than 10 years. Mustard seem to give a quote for older vehicles.

Two cheap options as I see it.

Let MOT lapse and when you are ready to use it again insure the car and take for a pre booked MOT which is perfectly legal. Then re-tax car.

or

Get garage doing the MOT to collect and return car. they will have trade insurance cover for such eventualities.
