Do I need a special kind of licence to drive a motorhome?
This depends on your age and the vehicles MAM (maximum authorised mass). The MAM is the combined weight if the motorhome plus the maximum load it can carry.
You won't need a special licence if your Motorhome is up to 3500kgs, which means you will be able to drive all but the largest motorhomes on our forecourt. Anything over this weight may require a higher category licence, depending on your age and when you passed your driving test. Applying for these licenses may require a test. However, most coachbuilt and panel van motorhomes will be less than this weight, so there should be no problem. If you have any questions about a particular motorhome, please get in touch. For more information, go to the Motorhomes Section of the UK Government website.
What speed limits apply to motorhomes?
The speed limits in UK and outside Europe can vary from country to country.
Within the UK, Motorhomes can follow the same speed limit as cars, unless their weight is more than 3050kgs. In this case, the limit is 50 mph on Single Carriageways and 60mph on a Dual Carriageway.
