Can You Tow Legally!

If you obtained your driving licence on or after 1st January 1997 and wish to tow a trailer or caravan even for personal use you will need to take this course, if the towing vehicle and trailer combined weight exceeds 3500kg.

The size of the trailer depends on the BE 'valid from' date shown on your licence. If the date is:

  • Before 19 January 2013, you can tow any size trailer.
  • On or after 19 January 2013, you can tow a trailer with a MAM of up to 3,500kg.
