I would like to know if one can transport a horse and trailer on a code 10 licence as this is a bit of a grey area for me and the traffic department told me that it is legal. I have a code B licence and a code 10 learners but want to do my licence soon for code 10.
A ‘code 10’ will be fine given that the driving licence code that you will be applying for will be that of an articulated nature meaning EB, EC or EC1.
- EB is an articulated motor vehicle of which the gross combination mass does not exceed 3500 kilograms.
- EC1 is an articulated motor vehicle of which the gross combination mass exceeds 3500 kilograms but does not exceed 16000 kilograms .
- EC is an articulated motor vehicle of which the gross combination mass which exceeds 16000 kilograms.
*and articulated vehicle is a vehicle which has a permanent or semi-permanent pivoting join. In a broader sense, any vehicle towing a trailer.
* GCM is the maximum combined mass of the towing vehicle its passengers and cargo plus the mass of the trailer and the cargo in the trailer.
