    No. You need to be fully road legal to drive BOATs and ORPAs.

    Not forgetting the ORPAs, some of which are still legal to drive.

    Most insurance companies don't cover pay & play.
    Green lanes are unpaved roads, Which will be covered.

    Far away from you!!
    Be aware though some breakdown and rescue services won’t cover you on ‘unsealed roads’

    So get a mate to tow you back to the black top

    Other Route with Public Access. Look for them on OS or Trailwise, some are OK to drive, others aren't. Proceed with caution, and if angry locals tell you to clear, it might be a good idea. With BOATs it is usually better to argue the point.

    I have messaged the lady I spoke of earlier, hoping for a reply about her insurer in due course.
