Rules on towing a broken down car?

My car broke down yesterday, and is at the breakdown garage who cant fix it. To return it back home from the garage would cost £420, which is too expensive. If I bring someone else and their car to tow my car, what are the rules for doing so. I asked and youre not allowed on the motorway which is fine as I can take the dual carriageway. What type of rope and things do I need, also do you need to put the number plate of the car which is towing the broken down car. I think the speed limit is 50 ot 60 or something. Please help me!!!!

Find a friend with a car or truck with a hitch, and rent a tow bar. Do it right, and save yourself a lot of grief.

I would not pull a car on a rope for more than about a quarter mile. Get a car dolly or trailer and do the job safely.
