This involves drivers in driving when unlicenced and therefore uninsured through ignorance of the law.

The driving licence you need to tow a caravan or other large trailer.
The ability to tow will depend on the driving licence you hold. The category entitlement on your driving licence will determine the type of trailer you can tow.
What is the B+E entitlement?
Category B+E allows vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes MAM to be combined with trailers in excess of 750kgs MAM. In order to gain this entitlement, new category B driving licence holders have to pass a further practical test for B+E. (There is no Theory test).
