UPDATE 12/11/2021 – REF NEW RULES
The new rules as of 15 Nov are NOT coming into effect!
If you do not have B+E on your driving license you will NOT be legal to tow anything over a combined MAM of 3,500kgs
Parliament rejected the proposed scrapping of B+E testing this week on the grounds of road safety, stating there was no evidence that removing testing would improve road safety. This goes to parliament again on the 17th November where we are expecting it to be rejected for a second time.
We will keep you updated as we get more information.
If caught towing without a licence you face 9 penalty points (3 for no licence and then 6 for no insurance) and also a fine upwards of £2000
