Re: How do i move a car without driving?

if you own a helicopter, you could use that.

Day insure (provided the car has MOT and Tax)

Trailor/low-loader (IIRC these people can be expensive)

EDIT: you probably couldn't trailor it on you license, you'd need somebody with the right endorsements to do it since you'd probably need a double axel trailor.

What about one of those A bar/ A frame or whatever they are called When my mate broke down in his astra the bloke from the AA had one of them, it's a good bit of kit, it hooks round something under the car then you tow the car and nobody needs to be behind the wheel

Take the handbrake off and get sponsored for a charity car-push home? Such a noble act might even get you a bevy of beauties to sit in your shiny new vehicle
