Class 2 Vehicle Licences

Further to our Road Traffic Offences update on 27 May, we need to clarify when Class 2 licences are required:


The Road Traffic (Licensing of Drivers) Regulations, 1997 RGN No. 240 of 1977 Section 2 states ... In these regulations - "class 2", when used in relation to a motor vehicle, means a motor vehicle - (a) exceeding two thousand three kilograms net mass: and .... (etc.)


However, when taking a driving test for a Class 2 licence, the test vehicle must have a minimum net vehicle mass of 5,000kg.


So, in summary, operating a vehicle above 2,301kg NVM requires a Class 2 licence, and a Class 4 below that.


Many thanks to the knowledgeable members of the transport industry who contacted us with this clarification.
