You can tow trailers up to a certain weight with your car driving licence.
Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM)
The weight you’re allowed to tow depends on when you got your licence.
You’ll need to know the weight of both the vehicle and trailer (MAM).
The MAM is listed in the owner’s manual and is normally shown on a plate or sticker fitted to the vehicle or trailer.
If you got your licence before 1 January 1997 you can usually drive a vehicle and trailer with a combined weight of up to 8,250kg MAM.
You are also allowed to drive a minibus with a trailer over 750kg MAM.
If you got your licence from 1 January 1997 you can tow a trailer that weighs up to 3,500kg MAM.
If required, you can get training on how to tow a trailer safely, including caravans or horse boxes from local training providers.
