We will be arriving in Perth with funds and would prefer to pay cash for a car. Given all the fraud in the world these days this is just not feasible in the UK anymore. Does anyone know if it will be a simple affair to arrive at a garage and simply pay cash for a car?

I have to say it was a large Ford dealership so we were a bit surprised by this.
