at the moment the law states when you pass your driving test ( if passed after 1997) you can legally drive a tractor and trailer up to i believe 22tons but you are restricted to a 3.5 ton car and a trailer weighing no more than 750kg (unless you take another test) so if your allowed to drive the tractor and trailer what is wrong with a car and trailer. firstly a car and trailer is much smaller and thus less likely to do as much damage in an accident secondly it is easier to tow a larger trailer. obviously this was not thought through when they brought in the trailer test law.
Why does this idea matter?
its important because i believe we (those who passed their tests after 1997) have taken the same if not more complex driving test but actualy achieve less so i think this law is unjustified and unfair
