hello guys

 

 

i have a 23 feet caravan which will be getting towed by car but today i was asked by a friend if you would require an upgrade to a normal driving license due to the size in question

 

 

does a normal car license still cover towing a 23ft caravan guys

 

 

thanks

It depends on what you mean by a normal licence. Any limitation is done on weight. If you passed your driving test before 1 Jan 1997, you are ok. If you passed it after that date, then you have a B licence and are limited to a total train weight of 3500kg, i. e. max weight of tow vehicle and max weight of caravan added together
