    Default Grandfather rights and learner towing

    Do grandfather rights still apply in supervising learner drivers for towing? I've had a look online and keep seeing people saying they had been revoked and only those who sat the test can now supervise people learning to tow?

    Best bet is to ring a towing instructor, they will know for definite.

    Yeah I'll do that today. Going to work out very expensive if the laws have changed 😞

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that the law has changed or is changing to remove those rights.

    I keep seeing people saying they've been revoked, but no actual evidence to say they have. I know they have revoked it for drivers supervising over 7.5T, but nothing to do with towing. I'll phone someone and ask.

    I know they were talking about revoking it but don't know if they did.
    It cost me about 500 in total for lessons and test, I'd never towed before either.

    It's a lot of money, and I'm almost guaranteed to fail at least once due to nerves! My dad's coming up in a month and has said he'll take me out and do a few days training. He's done his test for articulated lorries, so pretty sure he's covered. Hopefully I'll then just do a 1 day course with an instructor and sit my test soon after.

    It is a lot of money for sure, at least your dad can help you.
    It's not as nerve wracking as your normal driving test and I falied my normal test first time because of nerves. I drove through a red light

    I failed my test 3 times 😳

    I hope so FayeF. It's very annoying that they don't make the laws easy to find out.
