If you pass a regular car driving test (category B) you’ll get entitlement to drive the following specialist vehicles:
- agricultural tractors (category F)
- mowing machines or pedestrian-controlled vehicles (category K)
Otherwise you’ll need the correct licence to drive a tractor or specialist vehicle on the road. To do this you’ll first need to get the right provisional driving licence entitlement and then pass a tractor or specialist vehicle driving test to get your full licence.
You don’t need a licence to drive a tractor or specialist vehicle off the public road but there are age limits.
You also don’t need a licence to operate pedestrian-controlled mowing machines, but you must be at least 16.
Road rollers and tracked vehicles
You’ll need to hold a full category B car licence showing provisional entitlement for categories G and H before you can drive:
- road rollers (category G)
- tracked vehicles (category H)
