Farmers urged to update licence
Farmers must ensure they are properly licensed to drive vehicles with trailers attached, the ICSA has advised.
The association has pointed out that the Road Safety Authority are currently facilitating the reinstatement of a car and trailer licence (BE category) to drivers' current licences. This specifically refers to drivers who held a full car licence before November 13, 1989 and who did not then avail of the car and trailer licence option.
"The ICSA acknowledges the Road Safety Authority's advertising campaign on the issue, but we want to ensure that no eligible farmer misses out," said John Barron, ICSA rural development chairman.
