You also need to check your driving license to check your allowed to drive a car that is towing another,this entitlement ended after a certain date,but I'm not sure when.I know mine does cover it,but our apprentices at work aren't covered,but there a few years between us.
Not sure on the month but you can tow a trailer on a uk driving licence if and only if you pasted you test before 1996 and if you pasted you test after this you require a test for anything over 750kg? cheers Donald
