Who Can Tow a Trailer

You must hold a full driving licence to tow anything. Most drivers who passed their test before 1st January 1997 are allowed to drive vehicle and trailer combinations weighing up to 8.25 tonnes. All weights quoted here are maximum authorized mass (MAM) unless otherwise
stated.

Those passing since 1st January 1997 are allowed to drive a 3.5 tonne vehicle plus a 750kg
MAM trailer. They may also drive a car of under 3.5 tonnes plus a larger braked trailer
provided the combined MAM does not exceed 3.5 tonnes.
