New rules on towing in the UK

231 / News 2021
The government is set to introduce new rules on towing trailers and caravans on UK roads. The plans are due to be set in place before Autumn of 2021.

The new changes will mean that those who got their driver’s licence  after 1997 will be allowed to tow trailers or caravans up to 3500kg (Maximum Authorised Mass) without taking additional tests. The flip side is, drivers can be fined up to £1,000 if they tow anything heavier before the law is changed in autumn of this year. 

As the rules stand now, if anyone has passed their driving test after the 1st of January 1997, they can tow a trailer of up to 750kg MAM.

The DVLA will shortly be making an announcement to confirm the exact date in the Autumn of 2021.

It is estimated that roughly one in five vehicles in the expanded square mile zone will be liable to pay the Ulez levy of £12.50 per day. This will be around 100,000 cars, 3,000 lorries, and 35,000 vans.

Well, we’ve all lost count of how long the last lockdown (3.0) lasted, and maybe some of us have forgotten what it was we were doing socially before all the closures. From my personal experience, the most noticeable thing has been the lack of shooting pool with my friends and work colleagues. It’ll take weeks to develop our potting and cube ball skills, but it’ll be worth getting back into the mix, and actually having some form of a normal social life again.

The list below will help to remind you of all the things we might have been doing months ago, plus hopefully plant a few seeds to new ideas forthcoming.
