its not the same. A LH drive kept here for over a year has to be UK registerred - so wouldn't raise any suspicion. A RH drive might (although I think Bogi is overestimating the observation skills of the average bobby!) raise suspicion - as essentially it would have to have been exported to iceland, and then brought back here again.
Not sure what the big issue is: MoT will cost about £30 (£20 if you know where to go). Tax will cost about £80 for six months - but 5/6 of this will be refunded when you surrender it. Insurance on greencard. Vendor should be happy to organise both if you give him the cash. All probably a lot less than hiring a trailer.
