So in summary if your total combined weight is 3,500 kgs or less all in including the car, persons, trailer and load your fine, regardless of when you passed your test. Provided the trailer is legal of course (braked trailer if over 750 kgs and within car rating).
If your combined weight is over that limit and you took your test after 1997, take the B+E test.
