We know that trailer licensing in the UK can be a little confusing, which is why we aim to remove this confusion for you. Please read on to find out what you can and cannot drive legally, depending on when you passed your category B (car) test.


Passed Your Test After January 1997?

Drivers that passed after 1st January 1997 are legally entitled to drive a vehicle up to 3.5 tonne MAM with a trailer up to 750kg MAM. Alternatively, you can drive a trailer over 750kg MAM as long as the combined weight of the trailer and towing vehicle is no more than 3.5 tonne. For anything heavier than this, you will need the category BE (car and trailer training in Southampton).
