I've got £1400 out over the counter before and it's not a significant amount more so I think you should be able too.
just a warning to be safe:

as tinkerbell said I think you can take out whatever you want, but take passport or some ID with you
Ring and ask them if they can have it saved and ready to be sure.
You might have to let them know in advance. Im with a different bank and you have to inform them first if you need to withdraw such a sum. Can you not give them a ring now while they are still open?

if you use a handgun to withdraw the money it shouldnt be a problem.........
I think its about £1500 before the alarms go off and shutters come down! There's no way you can take as much as you like. You will get fobbed off if you try that.

try and get somebody to go with you to get the car that will be safer
Have you seen the car already. Are you buying from the location the car is registered at on the logbook. Take care. Have someone with you if possible

I agree with you but trust me, getting it out is a damn sight harder than putting it in :-D
just checked on their website and it says "some branches may require advance notice if you wish to withdraw a sum of cash over the counter which is above your daily cash machine withdrawal limit".
If you call the normal customer service helpline they can send a message to the branch for you (0845 3000 000) to make sure the money will be there. It may be considered too short notice but worth a try!

The CS team can also give you the branch number or transfer you through. (note: they will most likely try to sell you something since Lloyds CS Advisers are actually sales advisers).
I withdrew £7500 a couple of weeks ago from Lloyds... Had to show my driving licence as proof and they wanted to know the reason for taking out soo much money... Just told them i needed it to buy a car and thats it.
When I used to just have a cashline card the limit I could take out over the counter was £900 without ID, but that didnt affect the amount I could withdraw from the cash machine.

But since getting the chip and pin card I can take as much as I like without ID.

This is RBS tho so might be different for llyods, but I'd imagine they all work pretty much the same.

Cheers guys, Drove to the bank and asked and they said it was fine.

Im not meeting them at the address on the V5, to be fair i only rang up about it today and i want it tomorrow and the bloke is working. So he is dropping it to his father in laws tonight so i can pick it up tomorrow morning.

To be fair the bloke said if i wanted till 7PM when he finished work i could get it from his home address, but the only time i can go and get it is tomorrow morning.

Im taking a few people with me.

All may be ok but you are paying in cash. Could be someone selling someone elses car. You really would be better to buy it from registered address later if necessary. So many potential traps here
At least take this advice. Seller must have log book. Check the VIN number of the car against the logbook. If for whatever reason it is difficult to read be prepared to walk away.

When I was looking to buy my first car I was told terms were cash and had to meet to see the car. I took along a mechanic to check it over. Turned out to be an probable insurance failure as was half an inch longer on one side than the other. Either been in a bad shunt that had damaged chassis or a cut and shut (2 cars welded together). If you were selling a car would you feel safer to be close to home or to meet in another place. As I .stated earlier may be ok but stay alert. If seller needed backup of father in law its not inconceivable that he could have come to sellers house.
