Please Note: Licences held From 1st January 1997:

You are not allowed to exceed the entitlement to tow trailers given on your driving licence, even if the vehicle you are driving has the capability. Your entitlement varies depending on when the licence was granted – if you passed a standard car test (category B) after 1 Jan 1997 your entitlement is more restricted than for persons who took a car test before that date.

Driving licence entitlement is calculated on potential weight – Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM) – rather than actual weight. So if your entitlement allows you to tow a trailer with MAM 750kg, you cannot tow a trailer with GVW of 1,500kg that is unladen, and so only weighs 500kg. You can only tow a trailer with GVW 750kg.

If you passed your driving test after 1 January 1997 and have an ordinary Category B (car licence), you can:

  • drive a vehicle up to 3,500kg MAM towing a trailer of up to 750kg MAM.
  • Tow a trailer over 750kg MAM as long as the combined MAM of the trailer and towing vehicle is no more than 3,500 kg.

In general, this means that you cannot legally tow trailers such as: horse boxes, caravans or large trailers unless you pass the car trailer test (Category B + E).

Also, if you have been disqualified from driving and passed a test since 1st January 1997, you will have lost your entitlement to tow and you will have to pass a separate car and trailer test.

Please note: Towing a trailer when you do not have the entitlement will invalidate your insurance. This can lead to prosecution with a fine and/or penalty points on your driving licence.
