Most drivers who passed their test before 1 January 1997 have licence categories B+E allowing them to drive a vehicle and trailer/caravan with a combined weight of up to 7,000kg maximum authorised mass (MAM). The trailer or caravan must not exceed 3,500kg MAM.
Drivers who passed their test since 1 January 1997 are only allowed to drive a vehicle up to 3,500kg MAM and tow a trailer up to 750kg MAM. It is also possible tow a trailer over 750kg MAM as long as the combined MAM of the trailer and towing vehicle is no more than 3,500kg.
To be able to tow combinations outside this ruling requires the passing of an additional test to obtain Categories B+E.
