perhaps you can start from here:
https://www.gov.uk/vehicles-you-can-drive
Look on your driving licence and see what catagory you are entitled to drive .e.g C1 ,C1E.
look at this link for the weights you are entitled to depending when the licence was issued
https://www.gov.uk/old-driving-licence-categories
When you reach age 70,then you,ll need to pass a medical to drive over 3,500 kg .
hope this helps .

Hi Maty70, did your licence definitely have that category before the renewal for the photo? Have you passed age 70?

Might be best to contact DVLA :)

If it ain't broke..... Don't fix it!

You should have C1. The requirements changed in 1997. DVLA are known for missing this catagory off when Driving Licences are renewed.
