True.Just to add my comment in:
I wouldn't worry about the weight of the vehicle specifically if all your asking is whether you need to do the trailer test or not...
Basically my view of the law is; if the trailer you intend to tow has the capability of a load of more than 750kg. (Basically if it has brakes its over 750kg) You will need the B+E entitlement to pull it.
It does not matter if you only put 50kg in the trailer, its all about what the trailer can carry and that can be found on the trailer plate.
So post 1997 if you only have a B licence, you can only legally pull a silly little camping trailer on wheel barrow wheels.
Too true! I have my license so I'm alright to tow but the Nav for example can only pull 2700kg or thereabouts but matey boy down the road with his mondeo estate (true story) can pull an ifor plated at 3500 and not get pulled!True.
It is a different story for say, a Mondeo estate, but valid for a pickup.
