    dont worry about it ozzy, you're licenced for driving upto 7500kg anyway.

    it'll be registered as an HGV because its over 3500kg which is the weight limit for a heavy motorcar (licence catagory 'B' i think).

    Private HGV covers everything from 3.5t up to 44t providing you are licenced to drive upto that weight.

    construction n use all goods vehicles over 3,500kg must have at least 1mm across 3/4 of breadth of tread etc. after all its now phgv .n its gross weight is over 3.5 it must be legal.we dont make the rules but must abide by them .if you dont know the rules you cant abide by them. all the info is available through your local dvla. or look on web.
