Driving Licence and vehicle licence requirements to tow touring caravans

The permissions depend on how long you have had a driving licence.

If you passed your test between Jan 1976 and Jan 1986, a class A licence allowed you to drive cars and goods vehicles up to 7500Kg providing the total Maximum Authorised Mass did not exceed 8250Kg

A similar (but not identical) allowance applied from Jan 1986 to Jun 1990

Between June 1990 and December 1997 you required a category E attached to Category B (cars less than 3500Kg MAM), Category C1 ( vehicles MAM 7500kg) and C (Any heavy vehicle)

After Jan 1997 if you have category B, you can drive a vehicle with a caravan PROVIDING the COMBINED MAM is less than 3500Kg and the caravan must be lighter than the vehicle. NB the weight of the vehicle is the MAXIMUM weight - which will exceed the unladen weight.

To tow a heavier caravan you need category 'E'  added. 

Example: Elddis Explore 302 has a weight of 930Kg. It can be towed legally under a category B licence provided the maximum weight of the car exceeds 930Kg and is less than 2570Kg

Example: Elddis Crusader Superstorm has a weight of 1860Kg. As this is more than half of 3500Kg a category C+E licence will be needed and the vehicle exceed 1860Kg in weight.
