    Trailer weight

    You might need a tacho & you might need an operators licence. You need to red the regs to find out as it can be very case specific.

    You can have your vocational driving licence take away too.

    Choosing the right size trailer.

    Fit shocks.

    Trailer weight

    An lgv trailer has its own registration and would be listed / identified via that registration. A trailer in class O2 does not have an individual registration. You might have a trailer listed on your O licence (not my area of experience) but not individually listed.

    Its not the trailer that is O licence registered its the trader or business. The type of brakes on the trailer won't affect registration. Unladen weight does. Again I must admit I have not looked at how a 5th wheel set up would be affected by the O licence and the regs as so few are out there that are based on a cat B / BE licence. I would also have to consider if the applied load part of the trailers unladen solo weight is counted or not. Interesting puzzle.

    That's a situation I must admit I have never considered or looked through the regs to see if thats right or not as why would you? I think the assumption is that sub 3500kg trailers will be over run type.

    Trailer weight

    Currently sub 3500kg do not need to be registered or tested at all even if used with a C1 or C vehicle. You might need to be registered as an operator.

    Makes no difference as the "work" is still your own.

    This was what was thought and implemented. It has now been through the court processes & you do not need a tacho for this type of use.

    If he is just doing driving work on each day there & back I would question that. With that length of trip it would be hard to say your not a driver.
