Advice please (ref towbar)

No, you need a tacho fitted if a 3.5 ton van tows any trailer. You need an O-licence if the trailer’s over 1020kg unladen.

    *NOTE: From December 4th 2011 ‘small trailers’ towed by a vehicle under 3.5 tonnes and used for hire or reward are no longer exempt from operator licensing. Therefore, if your vehicle combination is used for carrying other people‚Äôs goods for hire or reward (e.g. couriers and hauliers) and the maximum allowable weight of your vehicle and trailer together exceed 3,500kg then you need a standard O Licence.
