Detailed results

test result notes
MTPLM / VIN Plate 83.3% This calculation is based on the gross train weight (the maximum permitted combined weight of the car and the caravan). When towing with your vehicle at GVW and Caravan at MTPLM, if this match is above 100% you are breaking the law! info
MTPLM / Kerb 89.3% Towing experience recommended; the ability of the car to keep the trailer under control may be compromised. This could be placing excessive strain on the car, consider a lower combination
MTPLM / Max Tow 83.3% Do not take Max Tow literally as it is a only a test of traction on a 1:8 hill start , and not the overall the ability of the car to tow at normal road speeds. If this figure is over 100% you could be in breach of your car's warranty and may be breaking the law!info
Combined Gross Weights 3655 kg The sum of the caravan's MTPLM and the vehicle's gross weight is greater than 3500kg; legally the driver of this combination must ensure they have both B + E indicated on their driving licence. info
Achievable Noseweight 5% Target noseweight of 7% (or above) NOT achievable, however a noseweight of 5% is possible. The result is the percentage of the gross caravan weight permitted on the vehicle's tow ball. The most stable towing combinations require 7% (or above) of the caravan's weight on the tow ball, less than 5% is deemed undesirable. Always check the noseweight of your caravan when
