Peugeot Partner - speed limit for peugeot partner white van - troychocolate

I have a 2010 plate Peugeot Partner and am trying to estalish whether it is a car dreived van or not.

Peugeot dealerships say there is a car version of this van. Does that make it a van derived car or just a van.

Also, there are some models whose GTW is just under 2 tonnes and some just over 2 tonnes.

Let's say I have the model putting it under 2 tonnes, should I drive at 50 or 60 on an A road?

Answers anyone ???

I agree with all other postings that it is outdated and slightly ridiculous piece of legislation given the modernisation of the automotive industry and the number of 3 tonne cars and trucks there are on the road.

If any van is over 2 tonnes GVW (maximum permitted laden weight) then you are restricted in any event.

That said the Partner is of the type I would describe as "car derived" and I am sure the courts would agree with me.

We had this in work

It absolutly depends on the plated weight of the vehicle

Since some Peugeot Partners are 600kg payload they might sc***e in under 2000 kg

However the 800kg payload ones probably do NOT

worth checking

we got nicked with a transit, both myself and the other Supervisor were fightable that it was a wrong "conviction" and then had to eat humble pie....after checking our facts.

oops &

cheers

Sc***e is censored???

But actually wanted to comment on another "oddity" i.e. air braked trucks at 7500kg can be driven faster than 2000kg plus ( but sub 3500kg) vans scheesh indeed
