How heavy a trailer can I tow on my licence?

I am over 70 years old - how heavy a trailer can I tow on my licence?

Asked on by

Assuming you passed your driving test before 1997, you should be able to drive a car towing a trailer with a combined authorised mass of up to 8250kg. You'll retain this entitlement when you reach 70, although you'll need to renew your licence every three years.
