From what I've read on here, you don't need a trailer test if the total weight of that rig doesn't exceed 3500kg ................................. :D

Bit of good news, rung dvla n spoke to a lovely young lady name Charlotte, she's told me I'm legally allowed to tow 750kg OR max vehicle and caravan weight of 3.5 t with my van, so il looks like the caravan I got given yesterday for scrap, WILL be getting Matt blacked this week, and maybe an air freshener inside ;) so if I got there for 7 or 8 Friday night, n stay til Sunday, with a caravan, whats it gona cost me? 2 people by the Way if that matters? Maybe 3 ? And do I need to ring them this week n tell them n pre book? Cheers

im assuming you have a 190 (3500kg gross) in which case you can tow up to 750kg - thats it...
