    All drivers who passed a car test before 1 January 1997 retain their existing entitlement to tow trailers until their licence expires. This means they are generally entitled to drive a vehicle and trailer combination up to 8.25 tonnes MAM. They also have entitlement to drive a minibus with a trailer over 750kgs MAM.


    Drivers who passed a car test on or after 1 January 1997 are required to pass an additional driving test in order to gain entitlement to category B+E and all larger vehicles. In addition to the new driving tests, drivers of vehicles which fall within subcategories C1, C1+E, D1 and D1+E also have to meet higher medical standards.

    What van you got? Wouldnt it be easyer to get those springs that allow you to carry more weight?

    Talking about springs went to get to new front tyres on my van, took the tyre off and one of the springs was snapped, luckly it was at the botttom. Should be okay till I can get it to garage next week sometime
