With your licence you can legally tow upto 750Kg
Not quite true....
This was brought up a couple of days ago on a thread about a dodgy trailer.....
This is taken from the DVLA website, and applies to people who have a new (post 97) licence:
Category B vehicles may be coupled with a trailer up to 750kgs MAM (allowing a combined weight up to 4.25 tonnes MAM) OR
a trailer over 750kgs MAM provided the MAM of the trailer does not exceed the unladen weight of the towing vehicle, and the combination does not exceed 3.5 tonnes MAM.
- a vehicle with an unladen weight of 1.25 tonnes and a MAM of 2 tonnes coupled with a trailer with a MAM of 1.25 tonnes could be driven by the holder of a category B entitlement. This is because the MAM of the combination does not exceed 3.5 tonnes and also the MAM of the trailer does not exceed the unladen weight of the drawing vehicle.
So in other words, the bigger your car, the more you can tow. (Although in the case of a P22 this probably doesn't apply as you are limited as to the size of vehicle you can drive). What sort of car do you have Seb?
