Agricultural vehicle dimensions: a guide to the law


Regulations govern the weights, widths, lengths and heights of vehicles used on the road. Due to the nature of the specialised machinery used by the agricultural industry, the regulations include certain exemptions for agricultural machinery, trailers and trailed appliances. However, the use on the road of these vehicles is often subject to further conditions.
This NFU Business Guide sets out some of the basic information that you will need to ensure that your agricultural vehicles, trailers and machinery are used in compliance with the law.
