What driving licence do I need to tow a caravan or trailer?

Knowing who can tow a caravan is not as complex as it may seem. As a driver, in most cases you can tow a caravan or trailer without needing to update your licence. However, if you are a younger driver or over 70 years of age, you need to check exactly what your licence allows you to tow.
