Trailer Training – The Law

If you passed a car test on or after January 1st 1997 you are limited to vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes maximum authorised mass (MAM) towing a trailer up to 750 kgs, or a vehicle and trailer combination up to 3.5 tonnes MAM providing the MAM of the trailer does not exceed the unladen mass of the towing vehicle.

You will need to pass an additional driving test in B + E if you wish to tow a caravan or trailer combination which exceeds these weight limits.

If you passed a car test before January 1st 1997 you keep your existing entitlement to tow trailers until your licence expires. This means you are generally entitled to drive a vehicle and trailer training combination up to 8.25 tonnes MAM. You also have entitlement to drive a minibus with a trailer over 750 kgs MAM.

Someone who passed their car driving test after Jan 1997 is restricted to pulling a trailer with a Maximum Axel Mass (MAM) is a gross/loaded weight of no more than 750kg as long as the combined vehicle + trailer weight does not exceed 4.25 tonnes. If you passed your test before January 1997 you may have a vehicle and trailer combination up to 8.25 tonnes MAM.

**Please refer to your vehicle handbook to check towing weight limits**

Cannot tow as weighs more than 750kg unless you passed you test before January 1997 or have taken a DSA B+E test.
