Looking for confirmation on post 1997 license towing limits?
All started off seeing an advert for a dark blue Dart described with an ex works mass of 350Kg apart from thinking that's gone up, I thought "Whats The Mass Of The Big Dandies"? Ex works Dimension 750 Kg Destiny 780Kg.
At first I thought "That Must Be Suppressing Prices For Highside Destiny's If New License Holders Can't Tow." Then you wonder whats happening to used caravan prices?
I was working on the assumption that there was a limit of 750Kg.
It appears that if your working under a 3500Kg total limit the driver can tow a braked trailer more than 750 Kg as long as the MAM of the trailer is less than the Tare (Kerbweight?) of the vehicle towing.
Alas the U Gov site is not too helpful, repeating the 85% rule (Guide) but not helping on law.
So does anyone on site know the Law?
