Motorhomes are large vehicles that come in a range of sizes. Before you drive one, it is important to ensure that your driving licence covers the category.
You will be able to tell by looking at the vehicle’s maximum authorised mass (MAM). The MAM is the weight of the vehicle added to the maximum load it can carry. You can then look at licence guidelines. For example, if the MAM is 7.5+ tons, you will need a category C licence.
If you passed your test after 1 January 1997, you will be covered for the B and B1 category vehicles. B and B1 allow you to drive a vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes.
