If the engine is running hot, then no, you can do more damage by driving it. If too much coolant is getting into the cylinders, then you can also damage the engine. I would caution them against driving it, but ultimately it's their choice. If they are OK with buying a vehicle with a blown headgasket, they may be OK with this risk as well.
