I would have thought that to impose a change or restriction based solely on an individuals age would be ageist and unlawful or at least challengeable in court.

Its not that they 'impose' the restriction though, its simply that you 'lose' the entitlement by grandfather rights for towing larger trailers I think, and effectively, the car licence reverts to the same as those obtained after 1997, where a separate test has to be sat in order to tow larger trailers above 750 kg

I think its some trawling and google time then
