When talking to DVLA on the phone one of their chief supervisors explained this to me
He said that is why much of the current rules are missing from it such as the trailer MAM not being more than the vehicle unladen weight for B licence towing and the word MAM missing from the 3500 kgs
He suggested waiting until later in the year to find out the exact legal wording
Seems daft to me to put something into the public domain that is not clear and precise
