Car & trailer changes come into effect

The Government has announced that as of 16th December 2021, the legislation around car and trailer rules has changed.

What the rules mean

These new rules now mean that:

  • Drivers who passed their car driving test from 1st January 1997 will now be allowed to tow trailers up to 3,500kgs MAM without completing and passing an additional car & trailer test.

The DVSA halted all car & trailer tests from 20th September 2021.

Changes to driving licences

The car and trailer (B+E) category will be added to driving licences, with new photocard driving licences being issued to those who it concerns.

The Government has encouraged all of those who wish to tow a trailer to complete voluntary training through an accredited scheme which is due to be launched early next year.
