    Straight cut and paste from DVLA website:

    Maximum authorised mass

    The term maximum authorised mass (MAM), used in the context of driving licences, is the maximum weight of a vehicle or trailer including the maximum load that can be carried safely while used on the road. This is also known as gross vehicle weight (GVW) or permissible maximum weight. It will be listed in the owner’s manual and is normally shown on a plate or sticker fitted to the vehicle. The plate or sticker may also show a gross train weight (GTW).


    As far as I know, the only way is to check the plate on the actual vehicle. I suspect the tag axle Hobby 700 would exceed 3500 kg, but would having a medical at 70 put you off the vehicle if that is what you would like?
