    Update.

    As more and more people take their B+E towing test there is something to be aware of. If you hold a manual car licence but take your B+E towing test in an automatic you can only tow with an automatic. Conversely if you only have an automatic licence BUT take your B+E towing test in a manual, your licence will now cover manual transmissions when not towing as well.

    All listed here:

    Something else worth noting that I’ve just discovered...
    I had my licence revoked in March due to a GP giving me incompatible drugs and causing a seizure, when I get my licence back in September I lose all of my grandfather rights to 7.5T and, more importantly for me, towing.

    Once I get my licence back I will have to take a towing licence to be able to tow a car trailer which I’ve been doing since 1982! :****er:

    Yep, for some reason when they give people licences back following any suspension SOME people lose their pre-97 entitlements. This has even happened when some change their address when moving. Typically the DVLA refuse to give reasons why when challenged.

    That sounds pretty harsh, have they told you this as it seems a bit strange?

    They tried that when my uncle turned 70 or had heart problems (can't remember which), he gave up his HGV entitlement and they were going to revoke his 7.5 ton entitlement. He appealed it and after passing a D4 he got it back.

    Yep, it’s all included in the paperwork that they send you when they confirm that your licence is no longer valid.

    Feckin fuming and the GP practice manager knows it!
