What is a long drive?
You could do this. Take all or some of brood frames and make anther colony with them. Queens are excepted best by young nurse bees. Go to bar and have a soda, some lunch, and b.s. with the locals for a bit. Four hours later introduce queen in cage with candy. Come back in a week, make sure new queen is there and laying, scrap off any emergency queen cells that may have been started, pinch old queen in other colony, leave queenless for a couple hours (optional), do a newspaper combine.
