Dont understand the term "Granfathers rights"
Is it the same way our son wears his Grandfather medals on rememberance Parades??

If so we still have 2 old licences for people who are no longer with us One is to drive ALL CLASSES including HGV's

Can we drive using these licenses

For 7500kg my Green licence allows me to drive those. Dont know the new clsses
Son has one that allows up to 7500kg mini buses up to 17 people
and certain 'military style vehicles' on hie Pink license

it all depends on when you took your test

We can both drive trailers & caravans

An example of Grandfather rights is when I took my basic car test I my licence covered me to drive anything upto 7.5 tonnes.

Now if my son passes his test the law has been changed so he can drive anything upto 3.5 tonnes.

I, however, still can drive up to 7.5 tonnes as I have grandfather rights. Not all laws offer this.
