Hello. I would highly advise against driving a vehicle without brakes, as a vehicle with no brakes is unfit to drive on the road as you will not be able to safely stop the vehicle. Also, depending on your local laws and regulations, it may even be illegal to drive the vehicle on the road with unfit brakes, or it will not pass inspection for you to get the necessary paperwork to drive it on the road legally. If possible, I would recommend having the brakes done before you purchase the truck. I would visit the lot or seller of the vehicle, accompanied by an adult, to see if that may be an option. Another option would be to have the vehicle towed to a shop, or to your home, and have the brakes done there.
