Van & Trailer (B+E)
B+E licences obtained before 1 January 1997:
You are entitled to drive a vehicle and trailer combination up to 8.25 tonnes maximum authorised mass (MAM) until your licence expires. Trailer must not exceed 750kg.
B+E licences obtained on or after 1 January 1997:
You are limited to vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes maximum authorised mass (MAM) towing a trailer up to 750kgs, or a vehicle and trailer combination up to 3.5 tonnes MAM providing the MAM of the trailer doesn’t exceed the un-laden mass of the towing vehicle. You will need to pass an additional driving test in B+E if you wish to tow a caravan or trailer combination which exceeds these weight limits.
B+E VAN & TRAILER:
If you have already passed your car test (Category B) and you need to tow a trailer greater than 750kgs then you will need to take a van and trailer test (Category B+E). You do not need to apply for a provisional licence as you automatically have provisional B+E entitlement added onto your paper counterpart licence when you pass the B test. All that is required is Module 3 which is the practical driving test.
