Jeep and Trailer Towing Lessons in Athlone

With a category B licence, you are allowed to drive a van, car or 4×4 with a maximum weight of 3,500kg. The licence also allows you to tow a trailer with a maximum weight of 750kg or where the maximum weight is more than 750kg, the combined weight of the towing jeep and the trailer should not exceed 3,500 kg.

In such an instance, you will need a category BE licence. You will also need a BE licence if you are looking to tow a livestock trailer or a horsebox as the maximum weight of these vehicles exceeds 3,500 kg.

Towing without the correct licence is illegal. If caught, you may face hefty fines/points and may even receive a driving ban of up to 2 years.
