It depends when you passed your test, i passed mine in 1988 and i can drive up to a 7.5 tonnes and tow a trailer without doing a separate test, but if you have passed recently you can only drive a car and small van, it will tell you on the back of your driving licence........hope this helps

...and just to add, if you passed your car test AFTER January 1997, you are restricted to vehicles of no more than 3.5 tonnes gross weight (Transit / Sprinter size).


Dr David
By normal, I trust you mean a 'full' UK licence. Things are always changing, but providing you know the law with regard to tachographs, then Danny is spot on. One thing to remember, 7.5 tonne means gross vehicle weight, and not the load you can carry. It has been several years since I drove these vehicles, but hope my answer helps you.

if you passed your test before 1996 yes if not no. your licence will have catagory c1on if you can

Hi If you passed your car test before January 1997, you can drive a 7.5 tonne Lorry. Have a look at your licence, the category for a 7.5 tonne is "C1". Hope that helps Danny
