Drivers that passed their category B (car) test before 1st January 1997 you are legally entitled to drive a vehicle with a heavy trailer up to a maximum of 8.25 tonne MAM, (Maximum Authorised Mass).

If you would like to tow a vehicle combination heavier than this, you will need to upgrade to the Category C1E (7.5 tonne and trailer) or the Category CE (articulated HGV) driving licence entitlements.
