    B licence you can tow alone When learning for B+E you need L plates and a supervising driver who has held B+E for at least 3 years and is aged over 21 as well as informing the insurer The supervising driver does not need to be insured unless they are going to drive it That Octavia and Derby...

    Easily done with Octavia and there is a 4x4 option Octavia is just under 2000 GVW if memory serves right so using that same Derby trailer plated at 1500 it would leave a max trailer load of 825kg

    Yes you could tow one horse ok but on your current B licence the trailer would need to be plated at no more than 1165kg MAM The Bateson Derby trailer is 675 empty and can be down plated to 1165 but that would leave a max trailer load of 490kg so how heavy is your horse?

    I need the GVW weight of the Audi to answer your query - Max authorised mass on the V5 doc or the top of the 4 weights listed on the weight plate usually hidden in a door frame or under the bonnet It is very likely that you will need to look for a lighter trailer such as a IW 401/3 or Bateson...

    950 empty with 1900 MAM and tow limit of 1500 means you can load a max of 550 into the trailer but under B+E rules

    Welcome to HHO Towing Clinic

    I mean either with a B+E licence or as a learner under supervision

    Welcome to HHO Towing Clinic

    I assume that will mean it is 950 empty and max MAM of 1900 It will need down plating by Bahill but I think they are no longer trading so that is a no go - unless your car has a GVW of 1600 or less and that is highly unlikely! Options - drive under B+E rules or get another trailer where the...
