I've been having a read about the test and it seems fairly in depth, although i'm sure I do most of it already. I guess, as with most tests, its mostly about playing the game and saying the right words.
No problem with the car as long as the trailers not over 1200kg.
Stuart, thanks for the offer of the trailer.
I may take you up on that.
Can anyone clarify this trailer lark for me - just to make sure I need to do this test?
As I understand Cat B allows you to tow a car/trailer combo upto a MAM of 3500Kg, as long as the MAM of the trailer doesn't exceed the unladen weight of the car.
So, if I have a trailer with a MAM of 1500Kg, but boat and trailer only weigh 1000kg. When towing with a car: MAM 1600Kg, Unladen weight 1200Kg, Max Towing 1200Kg. I assume, even though the total MAM is 3100kg and the trailer weighs 1000kg, I need B+E because the MAM of the trailer exceeds the unladen weight of the car?
This seems stupidly complicated.
