Just wondering how many of us currently use the 1119 kg unladen trailer weight 'O' licence exemption (with a tachograph) ?

Ok you probably only use it a couple of times a month.

Are you aware that as from 04 Dec 2011 that the exemption is being withdrawn and ALL combinations with a Gross Train Weight or MAM of 3500 ks or whatever you want to call it WILL require an'O' licence and all that goes along with it.?
