    Tachometer regs

    Unless another exemption applies yes. You are outside the 100km radius from your base. Get it delivered to site.

    Tachometer regs

    Tachographs should be installed in vehicles to which Regulation (EC) No 561/2006 applies. Certain vehicles should be excluded from the scope of that Regulation in order to introduce some flexibility, namely vehicles with a maximum permissible mass not exceeding 7,5 tonnes used for carrying materials, equipment or machinery for the driver’s use in the course of his work, and which are used only within a 100 km radius from the base of the undertaking, on condition that driving such vehicles does not constitute the driver’s main activity.

    B license towing...

    Thinking of upgrading or changing your trailer or vehicle? If your not sure if your combination is legal on a cat B licence then use this handy guide. https://www.facebook.com/TrailerTrainingCymru/posts/2177495702510724

    B license towing...

    No that is fine, Keep a note of this web page. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/towing-a-trailer-with-a-car-or-van/towing-a-trailer-with-a-car-or-van-the-basics Especially this bit Where the sum of the maximum plated weights of the towing vehicle and of the trailer added together exceed the plated GCW of the towing vehicle, this is not a problem as long as the ‘actual’ weights of the vehicle and trailer (which may not be fully laden at the time) do not exceed the plated GCW. Just remember that this is ONLY for C&U offences not for licences. For licences we use the max plated weights.

    We don't yet have trailer registration unless you are taking a commercial trailer out of the UK.

    Not completely. This is wrong provided the MAM of the trailer does not exceed the unladen weight of the towing vehicle And this bit the same vehicle with an unladen weight of 1.25 tonnes and a MAM of 2 tonnes when coupled with a trailer with a MAM of 1.5 tonnes would fall within category B+E. This is because although the combined weight of the vehicle and trailer is within the 3.5 tonnes MAM limit, the MAM of the trailer is more than the unladen weight of the drawing vehicle. This bit is also wrong A test pass for subcategory C1+E upgrades subcategory D1, if held, to D1+E. C1E does not upgrade D1 to D1E, It used too but not now.

    True but in the first case the DVLA would be wrong & you would be driving illegally.
