Thanks happy It looks like I wont need one, im planning on hooking up a small fishing boat with a trailer onto a estate car.

If I read correctly the boat and trailer cannot weigh more than the car and both the boat, trailer and car cannot weight more than 3.5 tonnes combined.. I think I got that in a breath lol big grin

If you passed your test after 1997 I think everybody needs a special licence to pull any kind of trailer. Or was it that you couldn't drive anything over 3.5 tonnes. Might be both actually, brains addled these days.

You need to really check your weights mate. My neighbour bought a boat hoping his estate car would be adequate to tow it up the slipway but he soon found out differently to his embarrassment. He has now got a Chelsea tractor of some sort with a bit more guts in it to pull his boat in.

I think you will be fine.

Your full car licence allows your to tow a trailer (unbraked) with a load up to 750kg (inc. trailer weight). It is also possible to tow more than 750kg so long as:

1. The combined weight of the car and trailer doesn't exceed 3.5 tonnes.

and

2. The weight of the trailer doesn't exceed the towing limit of the car.

Legally if a trailer can take more than 750kg, it will have some form of brakes fitted normally over-run brakes, I think. If the trailer doesn't have brakes of any sort, you should be ok.

If in doubt, find out about the weight limits of the trailer and car.(copied from license inquiries)

Spot on Flattie mate. A lot of caravan owners unfortunately are braking the law without even realising it
