    My colleague is sitting in the same boat and also decided to just go do the EC1 while he is at it. Luckally he has got plenty access to Sprinters and double axle trailers at work to practice with and do the license test. Remember there's no need to do the test with a huge truck, as long as you have something with a GVM over 3500 kg and a braked trailer over 750 kg you are cool.
    Something like a big Merc Sprinter, even a Ford F250 bakkie.

    what happens when your towing another car? does these towing rules apply then?

    IE If I'm Helping A friend tow a car with a rope/towbar
    do the towing restrictions and license restrictions apply then?

    so most cars are 1000 KG and above, if Im the one towing, isnt that then illegal with a code B license?
    Towing a vehicle falls under other regulations.

    Te other important thing to bear in mind is that it’s not just how much the trailer weights but how much it is licensed to weigh. If you tow an empty trailer which weighs well under 750kg, but it licensed to carry more than 750kg, you’ll still be pulled off.

    Ironically, I got an EB license when I turned 18, and til this day I've never towed anything after the day of my license test.

    EC, you mean. EC1 is for articulated vehicles up to 16000kg. EC for over that (the old code 14).

    Exactly, the EC is the old Code 14. EC1 is actually a bit better than the old Code 10, but not as good as 14.
