Vehicle & Towing

Vehicle, Towing and Driver licensing are extremely complicated and ever changing areas of law, which even the professionals find difficult to understand

What does the law say?

Did you know that if you drive a vehicle and trailer with a combined weight of over 3.5 tonnes, it requires a tachograph? If you don't have one, your insurance is invalid, doubling the offence and the penalty.

If you are then involved in an accident, the consequences can be significantly more serious. 

There are several government agencies involved with overlapping priorities and scope which unfortunately can lead to grey areas. As a result of this, caterers can find it very difficult to keep up to date and consequently often fall foul of the law, finding themselves subject to fines, penalty points, driving bans and even prosecution or imprisonment if a serious incident ensues.
