Trailer Towing & The Law

The law regarding towing with a trailer changed in 2021.

Previously to tow trailers over a certain weight on your car driving licence you were required, by law to take an additional driving test and obtain the Category B+E on your licence.

There is no longer a requirement to take a driving test to gain a Category B+E licence but you should check your vehicle and trailer weight to see if this is covered under Category B+E

We advise you refer to  and for further information about vehicle and trailers weights and what you are covered for

Despite driving tests no longer being required, many insurance companies advise undertaking ‘Competency Training’ and you yourself may feel better to be taught how to tow a trailer safely including how to couple a trailer and reverse.
