The time has come when everybody towing a trailer needs to check out the following to know if they are entitled to do so. If you are not licenced to do so we can help.
How Can I Find Out More About Towing Capacity?
The towing capacity is described for licensing purposes as the maximum authorised mass (MAM). Your owner manual/handbook will have a section in it about vehicle specification that will tell you this and almost all vehicles will have a metal plate fixed to its body which also gives this information. For trailers the MAM is the weight of a trailer itself together with the heaviest load which it can carry as specified by the trailer manufacturer.
What Trailers Does My Category B Licence Cover?
You can tow a trailer with a:
- MAM no greater than 750g, and or
- Where the MAM of the trailer exceeds 750kg but where the MAM of the vehicle and trailer does not exceed 3500kg.
As a general rule your category B licence would not allow you to tow a horsebox or a livestock trailer for bringing animals to the local mart.
