Soory Jeff.. I've *ahem* Fecked up... The MOT bit still applies, but now you need C for anthing over 7,500 KG MAM or C+E if you want to tow over 750KG behind it... fortunately it doesn't bother me since I have the right licence.. hence my sloppy research..

I will check, but the C1+E is MTW of 8,250 I think.. but in light of my last faux pas.. I'll check in the morning..

I just love the way they say that the courts will decide what the actual interpretation of the law is. Looks like Highways agency didn't understand it either!

OK the Fire Pump is going to be downplated so that it can be driven by a car licence holder, this is another area which is hard to get any info on, but first, I understand, it has to be weighed, and should weigh not more than 7,500 kgs. Here we go again !!!!

C+E is Arctic. C1+E is 12,000kg - truck + trailer. I also have this licence as will anyone before 1997 I think.

According to my licence, if you've got C1+E yes = 12,000kgt for both.

Is that the right way round? 107 endorsment applies..

"Lorries between 3500kg and 7500kg with a trailer over 750kg - total weight not more than 12000kg (if you passed your category B test prior to 1.1.1997 you will be restricted to a total weight not more than 8250kg)"

Bugger! Another interpretation? I'm just quoting from my licence is all....and it says 12,000kg for truck and trailer (not arctic). I'm quite sure though that EEC "harmonisation" has caused a few changes in the system since my licence was issued and as the Highways Agency blurb neatly puts it "it is the drivers responsibility to ensure compliance".

Blimey, this is soooo easy. (not)

Well yes, I totally agree that this thread is an insmonia cure, but, as many here tow their boats regularly, they may well be inviting trouble from VOSA if they don't (as I clearly don't) really understand their new rules on towing. VOSA are very active on major routes with police like cars and VOSA written across the bonnet. They are sited near weighbridges and I have personally seen them pulling over towing units for weighing, including holiday makers in Mondeos towing their weekend caravans, boat owners and pikeys with dual cab Transits and their mobile home stuff on the back. A little time and info exchange here might well save you some points on your licence and the impounding of your boat, or didn't you realise what powers they have now?
