C1 +E (with a code of 107) Means limited to 8,250 Kg not 12,000 Kg..Read 'em carefully boys'n girls.. or prepare to bluff the Police Officer who pulls you...'cause he may not know either... also if you send your licence off for any reason, make sure it comes back with the right entitlement. Swansea are quite sloppy and it's a bugger to get 'em back. You also need, where appropriate to make sure they transfer your rights for Minibus..

To make things even less helpful, the codes aren't explained anywhere on your licence! It even took me a while to find them on the DVLA web site! http://www.dvla.gov.uk/drivers/information_codes.htm

Generally though, the distinction between artics and other trailers disppeared with the old HGV I II III licences. Now it's basically either Cat C (rigid vehicle over 7.5 tonnes MAM) or C+E (the same plus trailer whether drawbar or artic).

Is it still possible to do a drawbar test, or is the 102 code purely holders of the old HGV II licence?

If you do a test with a drawbar now you get a c+e licence. The 102 restriction is for old hgv 2 drivers with 'grandad rights' as you thought JK
