Default towing a car with a A frame

hi to all
i have a question is it legal to use a A frame to tow a car that has no mot tax with the A frame attached to the front bumper and chains then going from the a frame to the bottom suspension and then back to the a frame allowing the car you are towing to steer

A Frame no, best stick it on a trailer I believe, if there's no MOT / Tax / insurance.
