    Don't know about that. Can any other forum members indicate what they have on their licence?

    I think EB is enough. Why need B if EB covers both?

    That's what I think, too.
    I think maybe Acydebyte could do with a second opinion on the answer he was given.

    In my understanding is that EB would cover B, BUT, if EB is obtained with a restriction I.e. Automatic, then the same restriction applies to B code.

    I need an interpretation of the Laws from you guys. (Relying on interpretation with a traffic officer is very risky so I won't do this unless there is no other way).

    I have a Code B license and just completed my Code 3(Heavy vehicles learners), so still need to do my EC to be able to drive a vehicle with GVM over 3500kg and tow anything more than 750kg alone.

    With this learners license, I can drive an EC vehicle if the person in the truck next to me has a valid EC license. An EC license covers all smaller licenses except the motorbike licenses.

    So, here is my question. With my Code 3 Learners, am I allowed to tow a trailer weighing more than 750kg if the person next to me in the car has a valid EB?

    This sounds dodge to me but it might be plausible...? What do you think?

    What the hell is code 3?

    Here are all the actual codes with the allowed GVM and GCM

    Code 1 learners is for bike. Code 2 for light motor vehicles and code 3 heavy motor vehicles. These code numbers are only applicable to the learners license. You will be allowed to tow a trailer with gvm of more than 750kg. It is in fact is a requirement to have a trailer with a gvm of more than 750kg when doing the EB driver's licence test

    What would be easier to do? The EB or the EC1 license.

    I would agree, EC would be easier, just make sure you do your research on the right school!

    I'd say do the highest rating you can afford.

    Agreed.

    Also completed my Truck learners, so now I've got until Jan 2019 to get my EC, but would like to get it done long before then.

    I might have missed it (discussion here?), but do the new reg's require one to redo the practical evaluation with your trailer then?

    Drivers will have to undergo a practical re-evaluation when renewing a licence.

    This has made me reconsider the route of upgrading my B License to an EC.

    If I need to redo a full EC practical evaluation every couple of years it would not make sense to me as it would mean classes every time to ensure you aren’t rusty and the rental of the truck to do the test. As a once-off cost it would have made sense, but if they want to implement this I will rather upgrade my B to an EB, it will be much easier to arrange a small trailer when one needs to do the test.

    Somehow I think this specific idea will not be implemented. The repercussions are just too big if you need to re-test your entire driving nation in an ongoing cycle. The issue is also that this will not address the main cause of fatalities on the road, which is alcohol abuse.

    I doubt that they will ever enforce retesting every time you need to update your licence - they will never be able to get enough un-corrupt manpower for this
