    This Maximum Authorised Mass or MAM means you’re pretty much covered for most things, including large 4x4s or vans pulling hefty caravans or boats. In fact, to get anywhere near the limit, you’d probably need to be driving a 7.5 tonne truck —

    The date when a driving test was taken determines the applicable MAM. I posted the article in good faith as it seemed quite clear although I am not an expert in Road Traffic law.
